Dr. Todd Voss Named Southern Wesleyan University President

It is with sadness and yet with sincere congratulatory enthusiasm that I announce that Dr. Todd Voss has today accepted the position of President at Southern Wesleyan University, our sister institution in Central, South Carolina.

I have had the privilege of working with Dr. Voss for the past seven years and know him to be an amazing dynamic and creative leader. His commitment and passion for Christian higher education, his Christian character and his high energy leadership qualifications are an excellent fit for his new role as a university president.

Since joining Indiana Wesleyan University’s administrative staff in 1989 as Vice President for Student Development, Dr. Voss has played a key role in making the IWU campus a place where students, faculty, guests and visitors feel welcome. He has brought a unique sense of creativity and passion for community that is reflected in the campus facilities and culture that we enjoy today.

Dr. Voss served as IWU Vice President for Student Development for 18 years. In 2007, he was named Executive Vice President where he provided senior-level leadership for student life, spiritual life, information technology, facilities and operations and athletics.

We are grateful for the 22 years of outstanding service Dr. Voss has provided the IWU community. While we know that the resignation of Dr. Voss will be a loss for IWU, we can rest in the assurance that Southern Wesleyan University’s best days are ahead.

Please join me in congratulating Todd and Julie, and offering our best wishes and heartfelt prayers as he assumes the presidency at Southern Wesleyan University on July 1st.

Dr. Voss will succeed Dr. David Spittal, who retired after serving as SWU President for the last 18 years. Somewhat coincidentally, Dr. Spittal was a Vice President at IWU when he accepted the offer to head Southern Wesleyan.

In the coming days I will provide information on structural plans following Dr. Voss departure. I want to reassure the IWU family what I know we believe – God will provide for our needs as we transition to new leadership in the areas under Todd’s responsibility. Pray that God will give wisdom and guidance to us during these times of transition.
