The Chancellor’s Circle

MISSION:  to cultivate Tyndale’s credibility, profile and stature in the broader community.

Members of the Chancellor’s Circle are ambassadors for Tyndale and will act as a think tank and advisory team to the Chancellor. The Circle is comprised of individuals invited from the broader community.  An executive advisor, appointed by the Chancellor, will act as a liaison with the Cabinet and Board of Governors. The academic deans and faculty will be invited to share their valued input on initiatives envisioned by the Chancellor’s Circle.
