Sports Center exterior upgraded The C.E. Jeffers Sports Center took on a new look as a complete renovation of the exterior was done this fall. The former cedar shake siding was replaced with Hardie Siding Products, weak structural areas were replaced and new signage was added. In addition, fir trees on about 400 feet of the west edge of the parking lot were trimmed high to allow views of the valley from the center. The original design was created by former Corban Board member and architect Neal Kolbo, and constructed by alumnus Clarence Jeffers in 1978.
from the president
As friends and colleagues gathered on Oct. 5 for inauguration weekend, I was greatly moved by the importance of the moment and the task that lies ahead. Leadership is never easy, but it’s incredibly challenging today. We face growing doubt in America regarding quality and affordability of education; we have had more than five years of major anxiety in the areas of banking and health care; recently, our federal government shut down for 16 days and we have significant concerns regarding the very future and sustainability of our country; and we have skepticism about and dwindling trust in our institutions and Today, we are realizing the the people who vision of the men and women lead them.
who have come before us, and we are bearing the fruit of their labors.
I am pleased to report that Corban University is on solid financial footing. We have broadened our constituency, and we now have more than 11,000 alumni “making a difference in the world for Jesus Christ.” We are also more involved in the Salem community than at any other time in our history. Today, Corban is doing significant Kingdom work in Indonesia, Australia and Africa. We have graduate programs being delivered around the world, a local counseling clinic, and more than 21,000 annual student service-hours given in the Northwest. In the past few years, we’ve had student mission trips to Columbia, Italy, Peru, Honduras, Ethiopia, the Philippines, Japan, Ukraine, Mexico, Haiti, Cameroon, Indonesia and China. To everything a season, and I would best describe Corban’s current season as spring. We are taking advantage of new possibilities and unprecedented opportunities. We have great aspirations, and we are eager to roll out new strategic plans and announce big, bold initiatives. This is President Tom Younger’s legacy. This is President John Balyo’s vision. This is what President David Miller expected to happen. This is what President Reno Hoff has given his life’s work to achieve. Today, we are realizing the vision of the men and women who have come before us, and we are bearing the fruit of their labors. We are in a position to think big and bold because of the way God has used our past leaders. Corban cannot be complacent because of the positive momentum we have at present. While we celebrate our past, we must focus on the prize before us. Change is inevitable and
must be embraced. I advocate that we must look forward—for new business models, new delivery systems and drastically new revenue and expense structures. It is easy to state these truths, but it is another matter to address them. The situation we face today is not unlike what the Israelites faced when preparing to enter the Promised Land. They had seen God’s deliverance from slavery in Egypt and had tasted God’s provision for them as they moved through the desert. And as they stood ready to face the future, most of them wilted and grew faint of heart, because they saw the cities in Canaan were fortified and the inhabitants were big and strong. However, some saw the future through the eyes of faith—not a blind faith, but one rooted in God’s word that He would be faithful to His promises. Today, we stand looking into a future where the potential and possibilities of this institution can be realized, yet there are giants before us. Let us not be those who shy away from the challenge and who see difficulty rather than opportunity, risk rather than adventure, uncertainty rather than God’s promises. When challenges are viewed from God’s perspective, they shrink in size and scope. As Corban’s tenth president, I declare that we will be bold and courageous because of the faithfulness and strength of the God we serve. It is not the impulse of heroism, or the lust for adventure, or the courage of self-reliance, or the need to earn God’s favor. It is simple trust in Jesus Christ. I am committed to the Corban University mission, “to educate Christians to make a difference in the world for Jesus Christ.” I have been and will continue to be “all in” as president of this fine institution. I am dedicated to giving this job—which includes our trustees, faculty, alumni, current students and regional community—my ALL. Together, we will experience God’s direction for Corban as we pursue Him at every turn, small and large. Soli Deo gloria. Sheldon C. Nord

concern for administrators given the between ELLs and their peers at the me gains in the primary grade levels.
CHRISTIE M. PETERSEn, Ed.D.
Christie Petersen, Ed.D.
According to research by Corban assistant professor of education Christie Petersen, Ed.D., elementary school principals play a bigger role in the success of Englishlanguage learners in high-poverty schools than previously realized.
In July, Amber Stokes, ’12, published her first novel, titled “Bleeding Heart.” Set in 1886, the work is a historical romance novel about a young woman trying to seek vengeance on those who had wronged her in the past and escape an unwanted suitor. However, she learns that revenge isn’t everything she expected and that her heart isn’t the only one that has been broken. It’s a story about the road to healing and the meaning of true love.
Her new book, “Transformational Leadership,” is based on research she conducted with elementary school principals between 2007 and 2010. Her study focused on three main questions surrounding cultural expectations, best instructional practices, school leadership characteristics and effective approaches to serving ELL students. “This topic continues to be a concern for administrators given the persistent achievement gap between ELLs and their peers at the secondary level despite some gains in the primary grade levels,” Petersen said. “I think this will be a resource that can guide school administrators as they work through these challenges.”
Stokes currently lives in Northern California and works as a freelance author and editor. She also writes for her blog, “Seasons of Humility,” and is co-writer of “The Borrowed Book” blog. “Bleeding Heart” can be purchased through Amazon.com or CreateSpace.
“Transformational Leadership” is available through Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.
faculty news Sarah Comstock publishes research on maternal obesity The peer-reviewed journal “Molecular Metabolism” has featured the work of Corban professor Sarah Comstock, Ph.D., on the cover of its print magazine.
“Change Your Brain” workshop brings more than 400 to Corban When people learn to “love their brain,” their entire lives will change. On Sept. 18, nationally recognized brain researcher Daniel Amen, M.D., spoke to nearly 400 educators, students and parents about this topic. His message was the kickoff for a series of workshops titled “Change Your Brain, Change Your Life Before 25,” being taught at Corban University by Director of Undergraduate Education Jesse Payne, Ed.D. Part of the presentation included brain SPECT scans showing side-byside examples of healthy and unhealthy brains, which elicited gasps from the crowd. The scans included brains damaged through trauma, obesity, oxygen deprivation, NFL football and more. Corban alumna Kaitlin Pearson, ’13, attended not as an educator, but for her own personal knowledge. “I’m thinking about a career in counseling or as a life coach, and this is information I can pass along to my clients,” she said. “His presentation reinforced what I have been learning about diet and exercise and the balance you need to have in your life.”
Professor and alumna co-author article for sports journal In October, the Recreational Sports Journal published research by assistant professor of human performance Shannon Simmons, Ph.D., and Kelsey Childers, ’13.
The article focused on the positive influence of athletics and intramural participation on self-esteem and physical self-concept. It was based on research Childers conducted as part of her senior research project. “This research not only shows the value and importance of athletics programs, but also that intramural participation improves global self-esteem,” Simmons said. “Our goal is to encourage our school and others to see the value of intramurals aside from just the benefits of physical activity. All students could benefit from participation in activity, and more so in a social, group environment.”
Comstock is an assistant professor of biology and her study, a culmination of 10 years of research, was initially published online last fall. Her research focused on the effects of maternal obesity on pancreatic development in primates. She worked with Japanese macaques in labs at Oregon Health & Science University to study alpha and beta cell ratios within the pancreas, something few other researchers have done. The journal is read by biomedical scientists and physicians involved in metabolic research and its findings. “If a physician working with pregnant women can back up her recommendations with research, it makes a difference,” Comstock said. “Women are more likely to make significant lifestyle changes for their baby than they might for themselves.” Comstock’s research is being continued by other researchers at OHSU. Her goal is to encourage others conducting similar research and to find additional ways to combat maternal obesity.
Leroy Goertzen leads panel discussion at apologetics conference On Oct. 18, Leroy Goertzen, D.Min., Corban’s Doctor of Ministry program director, lead a panel discussion at the Reasonable Faith in an Uncertain World conference in Tacoma, Wash. The conference was created as an outreach for Christian laymen and offered answers to daunting questions many in ministry may have heard from their congregations. These included questions such as why does God allow evil, is there evidence of the resurrection, and are the Scriptures reliable? “The panel I led was designed to help church leaders think about and see through possible models to help congregations engage the culture,” Goertzen said.
Professor’s poetry published in online journal The autumn 2013 issue of the Elohi Gadugi Journal features three poems by Corban professor of English Colette Tennant, Ph.D. The literary journal is published seasonally. This issue focused on the topic of autumn rain. Tennant’s poems “Blue Heron, Late November,” “Scene” and “September Vocabulary” were part of the collection, which featured nearly 20 writers. This is the second time Tennant has been published in this literary journal. To read her poems or to learn more about the Elohi Gadugi Journal, visit EGJournal.org.

Corban professor interviewed on Katie Couric’s show It’s not every day that a Corban University professor gets to speak to millions of Americans. For her Sept. 30 show, Katie Couric interviewed Corban assistant professor of business Kelli Gassman and her husband, Dan, about their experience with open frozen embryo adoption. The Gassmans’ first son, Trevor, was conceived using this method. The Gassmans were interviewed by Couric for the “Katie” show before a live audience at the ABC TV1 Studio in New York City. Due to age and other factors, they were infertile. While considering their options, they learned about adopting “snowflake babies” from a process in which one couple adopts another’s frozen embryo, which is then implanted in the adoptive mother using in vitro fertilization. The Gassman children now include 9-month-old Trevor and a second child due in March. Their hope is that others will be encouraged by their story and consider open frozen embryo adoption. They believe their interview will encourage Americans, including many Christian couples, to consider “snowflake babies” as a viable adoption option.
news Briefs Corban University Partners with Mars Hill Church Starting in the fall of 2014, Corban University and Mars Hill Church will offer a 24-credit Bible certificate at the Mars Hill Bellevue, Wash. location. Classes are slated to begin in the fall of 2014. The curriculum will include Bible and Theology Foundation, Ministry Skills Foundation, Introduction to Bible, Introduction to Theology, Christian Worldview and Apologetics, Biblical Spiritual Formation, Gospels, Bible Study Methods. “We are anticipating a great, ongoing relationship with Mars Hill Church, pending approval of the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities,” said Corban Provost Matt Lucas. “This certificate is not included under Corban University’s accreditation until NWCCU approves the program.” Mars Hill Church began in 1996 as a Bible study in the Wallingford, Wash. home of Mark and Grace Driscoll just north of Seattle. Today, the congregation is distributed across 15 locations in five different states, reaching millions around the world through a robust outwardfacing ministry that includes podcasts, music, events, and websites like theResurgence.com. Mars Hill has been named one of the largest and fastest-growing churches in America, as well as one of the most innovative. Driscoll’s sermons are viewed millions of times per year online and regularly rank number 1 on iTunes podcast charts. “I am enthusiastic and optimistic about Corban University’s partnership with Mars Hill Church,” said Dr. Sheldon C. Nord, president of Corban University. “It is consistent with our strong desire to be ‘Christian thought leaders’—a leading voice on cultural, philosophical and academic issues, with a commitment to raise up future leaders who will champion the cause of Christ in their respective disciplines.”
Corban expands advancement team
Corban University welcomed a new vice president for advancement on Sept. 30. Curt Jones has a proven history of leading teams and raising funds. He is an entrepreneurial start-up specialist with significant consulting experience. Among his many credits, he served as owner/president/CEO for The BEST Companies Inc., executive vice president at Delta Financial Associates Inc., and senior vice president for Continental Equities Corp.
Jones’ ministry and work experience during the past four years involved a project-driven entrepreneurial lifestyle of ministry endeavors, business ventures and consulting gigs. Jones is also a certified coach and trainer specializing in marketing/ entrepreneurship. He considers himself to be a lifetime student of leadership and organizational development. He is married with three grown children and three grandchildren. Jones can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. “After months of avid searching, I am enthusiastic and optimistic about the person God has provided for such a time as this,” said Corban President Dr. Sheldon C. Nord.
The advancement office also hired two other new employees as part of its team. Associate Director of Development Karen Lewis, ’96, previously worked in the Office of Admissions from 1993 to 1997. She has also served as an executive assistant for the president of Willamette Valley Hospice and as a volunteer grant writer for several Salem-area non-profit organizations. Most Karen Lewis recently, she served as the development director for United Methodist Retirement Center, where she worked on fundraising, donor outreach and more. Advancement Coordinator Alyssa Teterud, ’11, previously worked as an employment coordinator for Garten Services Inc., a Salem non-profit dedicated to giving job opportunities to adults with disabilities. At Garten, she worked with the human resources department to fill staff positions, facilitate training and work on employee Alyssa Teterud relations. She also oversaw the agency’s volunteer and internship programs.
Soccer teams go off field to help others Corban’s soccer players are more than athletes. They are citizens involved in their communities and in making a difference for others. On Aug. 9, the men’s soccer team worked with the Portland Timbers, the Major League Soccer team based in Portland, Ore., to help the Oregon Food Bank. At the agency, they took bulk food that had been donated in large packages and distributed it into smaller packages that would go to families in need. “I want our guys to be able to think outside of themselves,” said men’s soccer head coach Aaron Lewis. “There are so many people out there who are in worse situations than we are, and I want to instill these guys with a desire to serve in any way they can.” On Sept. 12, the women’s soccer team facilitated a soccer clinic at a girls juvenile facility in Albany, Ore. The team members taught the girls some basic skills and held scrimmage matches with teams composed of Warriors team members and girls from the juvenile facility. “The team did a good job getting the young ladies involved,” said women’s soccer head coach Marty Ziesemer. “At the end of the time, a couple of our players were able to share their testimony and share the Gospel. A number of the young ladies asked to pray with some of our team. I was very proud of the character of our ladies and the way they represented each other, Corban and Christ.”
Corban provides leadership for Salem Free Clinics Our Master of Arts in Counseling program has developed an invaluable strategic partnership with Salem Free Clinics (SFC). The numbers for the past two months speak for themselves: 741 medical
patients, 408 counseling patients and 14 dental patients, for a total of 1,163 patients. In addition, 242 requested prayer, 40 trusted Jesus Christ and six recommitted themselves. The growth in the number of clinics, volunteers and distribution of Bibles and other literature has increased dramatically. The strategic goal is to serve 10,000 people a year by 2015. At the current growth rate, however, it looks like SFC will exceed that goal next year.
Students, community members attend art and science forum During her freshman year, communications major Kelsey Leavitt kept a dangerous secret from everyone around her. On Oct. 15, the junior candidly shared her personal testimony about suffering from an eating disorder that nobody knew about. “I would go into the dining hall and fill my plate,” she said. “But I would challenge myself to leave hungry because I wanted to fit an image that was manufactured by advertisers and the media.” Approximately 125 people attended “The Skeleton in the Closet, The Intersection of Art and Science Explore: Body Image, Eating Disorders, Obesity and Pregnancy” event, which included a forum and an opening reception for the Psalm Visual Arts Gallery exhibit by the same name. The forum featured award-winning photographer Fritz Liedtke, who discussed how his struggle to understand his own eating disorder led to the photo exhibit, displayed at Corban between Oct. 15 and Nov. 21. Additionally, Corban associate professor of science Sarah Comstock, Ph.D., shared her groundbreaking research on unhealthy maternal eating patterns and their effects not only on children, but also on grandchildren.
Alumna wins top honor in credit union executive competition On Nov. 6, Corban University alumna Amanda Brenneman, ‘12, learned she won the top prize in the Next Top Credit Union Executive competition. She works as a business development officer for MaPS Credit Union based in Salem, Ore. The prize includes $20,000 in executive leadership training and more. She was selected from hundreds of applicants internationally to 15, and finally, five who submitted videos, garnered votes from online supporters and gave personal presentations to credit union executives in an effort to win the grand prize. As she moves through the corridors of MaPS Credit Union’s Salem, Ore., headquarters, the confident 28-year-old Adult Degree Programs alumna talks casually about her recent trips to Washington, D.C., and Florida as a lobbyist on behalf of credit unions in the United States. She works as a business development officer, and in February, she was selected as one of 19 credit union employees under age 35 in the United States and the United Kingdom to represent the industry. “The trip was definitely career changing,” Brenneman said. “I had the
opportunity to address Senator Jeff Merkley in front of the Oregon constituents. I was able to meet Representative Kurt Schrader and sit on his couch with a group to talk to him about our desire to defend credit unions’ tax status, among many other issues.” In May, she spoke about the Buy Local program to a national audience of credit union CEOs, presidents and other executives in Florida. When she started in Corban’s Adult Degree Programs, Brenneman wasn’t planning to work in the financial industry. She initially wanted to serve as a trauma counselor for survivors of human trafficking, but admitted an internship with Called to Rescue changed her mind. “While I was there, I realized God did not equip me with the skills to counsel victims of trauma,” she said. “I realized I was drawn to the business and inner workings of running a non-profit.” This internship gave her the opportunity to write grant proposals and speak to the public about the agency’s mission. During Corban’s 2012 commencement ceremony, she was recognized for her efforts and named the ADP Distinguished Graduate. Brenneman’s passion for the cause didn’t end with her internship and graduation. She currently works with Called to Rescue as a grant writer, with duties that include writing applications for funding that could potentially be used as part of a $48 million matching grant to help human trafficking victims. She also serves as a board member for POLE Gems in Salem, which ministers to men and women working in the adult entertainment industry.
Longtime Corban trustee passes away On Oct. 11, Corban University lost a friend and servant when Anna Lorete Bauman Herrman passed away at the age of 82. Herrman served for 18 years on Corban’s Board of Trustees and was one of the first two women who were invited onto the board. She and her husband, Keith Herrman encouraged young people to seek out a Bible-based higher education by establishing scholarships and grants for students. She was born Jan. 16, 1931, in Grand Junction, Colo., and worked as a teacher on the Oregon Coast until 1958. In 1957, she married Keith Herrman. They lived most of their lives in the Connell, Wash., area. Throughout her life, she was a strong advocate for education, arts and music. She was involved in church and community activities and leadership roles. Herrman also loved to travel and had a strong desire to see God’s creation throughout the world. A memorial service was held Oct. 26 in Connell. The family requested that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the following two memorial funds. Building Fund First Baptist Church of Connell P.O.

In recent months, the lament about the high cost of education has served to disillusion some families and devalue the importance of careful planning when considering a future career. Besides economics, it is important to be aware of another factor relative to Corbanâ€™s mission. We are preparing students who pursue careers that have great impact but sometimes do not provide a significant salary. For the last decade, and especially since the recession, the conversation about the value of education has only been defined in economic terms. This makes sense, because as tuition increases, student loans are more of a problem. Congress and the president are rallying the middle class populists to draw attention to this issue. Our students borrow $23,000 on average, compared to the $29,000 national average of other private institutions. In general, institutions of higher education have hunkered down and have not had a response other than to justify their costs. The result is that the metaphor that education is a commodity becomes reality. At Corban, we believe that education is more than a commodityâ€”its value is not defined by its economic value (a paycheck). A good education opens up new ideas and opportunities, challenges
our common sense thinking, develops differing perspectives, reveals who we are and who we can be, and changes the world. Further, as Christians, education provides the means to further the Gospel, shape lives and develop a biblical worldview. In recent months, Corban has created programs that add clarity to the communication regarding our purpose and strategies. They are intended to move us into the higher education conversation instead of away from it. We believe that our education is valuable as a commodity, but we intend to show that it is so much more. We have crafted these programs as: The Corban Story Corban Unleashed The Corban Promise
In our fast-changing world, the clear understanding of who we are is more important than ever. In the Christian higher education community, descriptors have become outdated, misunderstood and confusing to many student applicants, their families and supporters. In an effort to address this, we want to confirm the value of our mission and its return on investment in a way that provides clarity. We describe it as follows: Corban is a Gospel-driven community of scholars and leaders who seek to bring a biblical perspective to all areas of study and practice. We offer deep scriptural rooting to students while training them for any of a wide variety of professions—from education to business and from counseling to political science. Why? Because as a comprehensive university, we believe the best way to make a difference in the world for Jesus Christ is to send biblically and
theologically grounded graduates into a wide variety of fields. In fact, we think Corban plays a unique role in the Great Commission (Matthew 28:1920). We’re a training ground for disciples. We believe every academic and professional field can be transformed by the Gospel, by disciples who love the Lord with all their heart, soul, strength and mind (Matthew 22:37), and who love their neighbors as themselves (Matthew 22:39). Our recent partnership with Mars Hill Church in the Seattle area demonstrates our commitment to engage other schools and organizations to extend our reach into places it has not been before. Beyond our main campus, a 24-credit Bible certificate program is going to be offered at Mars Hill, beginning in the fall of 2014. The curriculum will include Bible and Theology Foundation, Ministry Skills Foundation, Introduction to Bible,
Introduction to Theology, Christian Worldview and Apologetics, Biblical Spiritual Formation, Gospels and Bible Study Methods. We believe in sending out ambassadors with the Gospel into many fields. For the past 75 years, these graduates have modeled integrated, authentic lives and served their communities in tangible ways. Corban is committed to serving the broader community. We deliberately live out God’s call to “love our neighbors” by weaving service opportunities into our academic and student life programming. This means the broader community sees our students, faculty and staff actively meeting needs and joining important community conversations. It also means our graduates develop a theology and philosophy of community engagement that they take with them to whatever field and community they choose.
In a recent address, President Sheldon C. Nord announced that he is asking friends and supporters to prayerfully consider what role you can play to partner with us, to come alongside us, being mindful of the following: we have huge challenges; we serve a big God; we embrace a spirit of boldness, and an unapologetic commitment and service to Christ; and we are committed to preparing Warriors for Christ. His request is threefold: That you partner with us in a bold adventure that is called Corban Unleashed. That you engage with Corban, as iron sharpens iron, to discover where God might be leading us in each of the areas detailed below. To this end, in the coming weeks and months, he would like to meet personally with many of Corban’s friends and supporters—in coffee shops, homes, on campus or wherever—to hear what this might mean to you and how we can grow together. That you pray, to consider how you can join us in this battle of ideas, helping Corban to grow and be a mighty force to the glory of Christ. There are tremendous opportunities ahead of us, and it's going to take a mighty effort, but together we can step forward in fresh, ambitious and bold ways. Corban Unleashed is the tagline for the University’s four strategic goals and sets the course for being the following: A Christian thought leader— As a Christian institution, we desire to be a leading voice on cultural, philosophical and academic issues and to raise up future leaders who can do the same. Our desire is that we lead under the mighty hand of God, through thinking soaked in prayer, carried by the Holy Spirit, tethered to the Bible, and done in the service of love. Establish Corban University as a leader in Christian thought. Address relevant cultural issues in an engaging, Gospel-centered manner. Develop a Dream Center/Initiative that allows students to discover God-sized possibilities that change their communities and impact the world.
An environment of faith, integrity and quality— Corban is committed to a campus and an online learning environment that is Christcentered, rigorous and of the highest quality. We desire Corban’s influence to be realized through online and innovative educational programs. Offer innovative programs, services and spaces that foster spiritual and intellectual transformation and a vibrant community. Increase Corban’s commitment to meaningful mentorship and professional preparation. Build state-of-the-art facilities that provide students with invigorating learning environments and opportunities.
Known for innovative technology—Our world is changing faster than ever as technology continues to alter the educational landscape. Corban desires to stay ahead of these innovations by committing to the newest educational technology that fosters student learning, by improving service and productivity through up-todate software and systems, and by reaching more students around the world. Improve student learning through enhanced educational technology. Implement software and web applications that improve customer service and employee productivity. Expand the University’s reach through online and innovative educational programs.
Committed to global engagement—Our world is also shrinking. Corban plans to continue its commitment to global education by expanding its presence around the world so our graduates are prepared to navigate diverse cultures. Provide learning opportunities and educational programs that expand the University’s international presence. Diversify the Corban community to reflect the Kingdom of God and prepare students to impact a global and pluralistic society. Network with other globally minded institutions to further the Gospel.
The Corban Promise
We recognize that many students and parents have concerns about the cost of student loans required to finance higher education. In an initiative to address this, we have introduced a program called The Corban Promise, which empowers graduates to secure a well-paying job after graduation or ensures their ability to repay their loans while following their dreams. Beginning in the fall of 2014, all incoming students at Corban University will automatically be enrolled in The Corban Promise, a loan repayment assistance program. The Corban Promise works as a safety net that helps ease the burden of student loans. Why is Corban University offering The Corban Promise? We believe that our education is worth the investment. We believe that our education opens doors. We believe that our education transforms lives. We believe that our education prepares students to make a difference in the world for Jesus Christ. And
most importantly, we believe in our students and will empower them with The Corban Promise. Corban is the first college in the Pacific Northwest to
tackle the rising concerns surrounding the national educational debt load by providing a safety net for our studentsâ€™ educational investment. Programs like The Corban Promise have been used over the past 25 years by Yale Law School and other Ivy League institutions. The Corban Promise is provided at no cost to students and families as our commitment to studentsâ€™ success. The Corban Promise covers all federal student loans, private alternative student loans and parent PLUS loans. Students must graduate with a bachelorâ€™s degree from Corban University. Graduates must be employed for a minimum of 30 hours per week, work in the U.S. (or, if a student chooses to work outside of the U.S., he or she has three years before he or she loses eligibility), and not be self-employed or working for family. Given the mission of Corban, we believe this is the right thing to do.
Corban. Now more than ever. The world needs well-educated Christians who can articulate their faith in the work and community settings to which God directs them. The world needs Christians who are eager to communicate the Gospel and have the confidence in their education that encourages them to serve as leaders. At Corban, we believe our strategic plan and our new initiative demonstrate our commitment to providing a sustainable and relevant Christian education so that our world today and our world tomorrow will become better places to the glory of God. 15

“The internships prepare students for their careers by giving an experiential background in how the political process works whether that is in Salem, Washington D.C., or another capital.

Corban’s third president passes away on Thanksgiving
Former President Reno Hoff honored with school naming On Nov. 15, Corban University’s ninth president passed away at his home in Lincoln City, Ore. Dr. Reno Hoff spent 43 years at the university, beginning in 1969 when the school was moved from El Cerrito, Calif. to Salem, Ore. In May 2013, the Corban University School of Business was renamed the Hoff School of Business in recognition of his contributions. “Dr. Hoff was committed to students learning reflect Christ no matter their career, said Griff Lindell, Dean of the Hoff School of Business. “He clearly understood that business is a mission field. We are honored to be known as the Hoff School of Business because we are focused on equipping our students to live out ‘Christ in them the hope of glory’ in life, especially at work.” Hoff was passionate about viewing life and career as ministry and understood the concept of business as mission. His vision included “faculty with business experience challenging students with real life business situations and preparing them for actual job requirements after graduation.” His own education continued throughout his career with a Bachelor of Science degree in theology and finance from Western Baptist Bible College (WBBC) in 1973, a master of science in academic leadership from the Oregon College of Education in 1978 and an honorary degree bestowed by Western Baptist College in 2000. “I viewed my work here as a ministry and not a job,” Hoff said earlier this year. Hoff’s contribution to the university covered a wide range of work. He was originally hired as business manager and dreamed of developing the business influence beyond his title. One of the highlights for him was the establishment of the Business Management program. “It was the first step toward a comprehensive college, culminating in the addition of the MBA program in 2008,” he said. “I see that as my favorite highlight of my career.” He assumed the position of vice president for administration until becoming executive vice president/provost under President David Miller, and served in that capacity until assuming the presidency in Oct. 1999. His achievements included certification as 30
a certified financial planner, a licensed tax consultant, enrolled agent–IRS, certified tax advisor and registered investment advisor. Looking back, Hoff saw the value of doing his best and letting God take care of the future. His work philosophy was “to give leadership to carry out the vision of my predecessors, and to be an implementer in order to see how God will bless.” He summarized his career with this observation: “working with people who have the same vision and a common bond in Christ, with a goal to make a difference in the world, is what has made it a rewarding experience.” As a continuation of Hoff’s legacy at Corban, the university established the Hoff School of Business Scholarship Fund to help business students reach their academic goals. “The Hoff Scholarship will be a tremendous benefit to our students and provides a great opportunity for alumni of the business programs to support the next generation of students in the Hoff School of Business,” Lindell said.
For more information about this scholarship contact Lindell at firstname.lastname@example.org or call him at 503-375-7191. Donations may also be made to the Hoff School of Business Scholarship Fund and mailed to: Hoff School of Business Scholarship Fund 5000 Deer Park Dr. SE Salem, OR 97317
