Tabor announces transition of presidential leadership

HILLSBORO, Kan. –The Board of Directors and President Jules Glanzer together have set in motion a process to begin a presidential leadership transition at Tabor College with the purpose of continuing to advance the college while Glanzer transitions into retirement. Together, the College is planning for a presidential transition within the next 18 months.

“The board is thankful to President Glanzer for his many years of service and will work with him for a seamless transition,” said Susan Franz Koslowsky, board chair. 

Glanzer began his tenure at Tabor in February 2008 after serving as the dean of the George Fox University seminary. Under his leadership, Tabor has expanded its program offerings and campus facility development to serve students and offer exceptional hospitality. Glanzer has been responsible for raising nearly $50 million to benefit the operations and capital growth of the College. Additionally, he established the presidential leadership program, both teaching and mentoring students for the past 13 years. 

 “The Executive Committee of the Board has met, serving as the Presidential Transition Discernment Committee, and a search committee will be formed soon to identify the best leader for Tabor as we continue to serve our students and fulfill our mission,” Koslowsky said.
