President Scales Named Chair of CCCU Commission

Posted by Deborah.Walker on Wednesday September 17, 2008

Nyack’s own Dr. Michael G. Scales has been selected as the new chair of the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities (CCCU) Commission for Advancing Intercultural Competencies. 

Founded in 1976, the CCCU is an association of 185 faith-based campuses in 24 countries.  The Commission was developed by the CCCU Board of Directors to develop biblically-based initiatives to help faculty, administrators, and students deepen their understanding of the principle of "loving your neighbor." 

Topics explored by the Commission on behalf of colleges and universities around the globe include race, gender, and ethnicity; the plight of the disenfranchised; and world religions.

The Robert and Susan Andringa Award for Advancing Racial Harmony is an example of public recognition that the Commission awards to member campuses. Nyack College was the recipient of the Racial Harmony Award in February 2001.

On Dr. Scales’s appointment, Dr. Mimi Barnard, CCCU Vice President for Professional Development & Research says, "The selection of Dr. Scales as chair was a natural choice for the Commission in light of Nyack's heritage and commitment to addressing these issues. We are excited about the future!" 

Congratulations, Mr. President!
