Tabor announces presidential transition

Tabor College announced on Oct. 22 its Board of Directors and President Jules Glanzer have begun a presidential leadership transition as Glanzer retires. Tabor 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 board chair Susan Franz Koslowsky.

Glanzer began his tenure at Tabor in 2008 after serving as dean of the George Fox University seminary.

Under his leadership, Tabor expanded its program offerings and campus facility development. Glanzer has been responsible for raising nearly $50 million to benefit the operations and capital growth of the college.

Koslowsky said the Board’s executive committee will serve as the presidential transition discernment committee, and a search committee will be formed soon.

“I love Tabor and after almost 13 years of service still find fulfillment, joy and great meaning to serve in the capacity of president of the college,” wrote Glanzer in a letter to the board. “However, to effectively lead Tabor into the next era will require a president who has the energy, stamina and capacity needed to address and respond to the many challenges.”
