Hartford Seminary Appoints Joel N. Lohr Seminary President

Hartford Seminary’s Board of Trustees today named Dr. Joel N. Lohr as the Seminary’s next president. On July 16, he will succeed Dr. Heidi Hadsell, who is retiring after leading the Seminary for 18 years.
Dr. Lohr is an award-winning author, scholar, and passionate leader in interreligious relations and higher education. Currently, he is Dean of Religious Life at University of the Pacific in Stockton, Calif., where he holds academic appointments in the School of Education and the Department of Religious Studies.
“I am honored and humbled to join the Hartford Seminary community and serve as its next president,” Dr. Lohr said. “The Seminary’s tagline has been my life’s mission: Exploring Differences, Deepening Faith. No other seminary is doing what HartSem does, and with such excellence. Together we will continue to cast a vision and forge a path toward ever more meaningful dialogue, effective peacemaking, and higher learning as we build enduring ties across religious communities and work to heal our broken world.” [Read More].
