The council is a group of alumni who help connect and reconnect Grace College and Seminary graduates to their classmates and to the institution. Grads have come from as far away as Arizona, North Carolina, New York, Minnesota, Texas, and Pennsylvania to participate.
The council meets the rest of today (Thursday) and tomorrow morning (Friday). They are hearing from Grace staff about various issues. In addition to Dr. Swanson, others to take the platform are: Tom Dunn (master plan), Dr. Bill Katip (academic update), Dr. Mark Norris (Grace history project), John Boal (advancement), Bill Gordon (Institute for Enterprise Development), and Dr. Ron Manahan (president). In addition, they attended chapel this morning and will interact with students throughout the two days.
The session is hosted by the Grace Alumni Services office and its director, Tim Ziebarth.
