For Richard Kriegbaum, Ph.D., part of the call to be president of Fresno Pacific University is the call to live out the Lord’s Prayer.
The Fresno Pacific Board of Trustees unanimously appointed Richard Kriegbaum, Ph.D., as 12th president of the university at a meeting September 16. In addition, they endorsed a new leadership model that increases the role of the provost.
Kriegbaum will focus on community relations and external duties, while Provost Stephen Varvis, Ph.D., adding the title of senior vice president, assumes a larger role in the day-to-day operations of the main campus and regional centers. The changes are effective immediately.
Fresno Pacific University mourns the death of Arthur Wiebe, Ed.D., president emeritus, visionary and longtime university and community benefactor. Wiebe died Sunday, September 14, 2014. He was 94.
