Tyndale University is delighted to announce that the Board of Governors has appointed Dr. Elizabeth Green to a five year term as Provost and Chief Academic Officer, effective July 1, 2021.
In this role Dr. Green will provide oversight to all Academic programming, as well as services provided by the Office of the Registrar, Library, Open Learning Centers, and Tyndale Academic Press. The Provost is also a core member of the Cabinet, Tyndale University’s executive leadership team.

During this time Dr. Green also published as co-editor with Dr. J Luetz, “Innovating Christian Education Research: Multidisciplinary Perspectives” and continued teaching in Undergraduate Studies.
Dr. Green’s academic credentials include her B.A. in Modern History from the University of Oxford, Post Graduate Certificate in Education from the University of Cambridge, M.A. in Education Management from the University of London, and D.Phil in Education from the University of Oxford.

“Dr. Green is a respected scholar, researcher, leader and speaker of international recognition and reputation,” states Tyndale University President, Dr. Marjory Kerr. “Equally critical, she is passionately committed to the mission of Tyndale University. We offer our congratulations and pray God’s blessing on Beth in this mission critical role.”
