Andrew College welcomes Buchanan

Linda Buchanan, most recently the vice president and dean for student life at Iowa Wesleyan College in Mount Pleasant, Iowa, was elected president of Andrew College today following a special board of trustees meeting. 

President-elect Buchanan takes office June 15, 2015. She succeeds Interim President Kirk Treible, a former Andrew chief executive who has led the small, private institution since David Seyle retired in July 2014.

“Dr. Buchanan's credentials fit Andrew College's needs exactly right,” said George Flowers, chairman of the Andrew College board of trustees. “She has the qualifications we seek in our next president. Her proven leadership record at United Methodist institutions across the nation assures a bright future for Andrew College.”

Buchanan, a retired captain in the United States Navy, brings nearly 40 years of higher education experience to Andrew College. Her professional background includes leadership roles at Iowa Wesleyan College and LaGrange College, both United Methodist-relation institutions, as well as Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)-related Midway College in Kentucky.
