Giving thanks for the life of Donald Hugh Bessell

By Peter Patterson

Hugh Bessell, as he was known at Wycliffe, proved to be a wonderful addition to the Board of Directors when he joined in November 2000.

Besides his considerable financial qualifications and experience, Hugh brought wisdom, good judgement, and a strong commitment to his faith. He participated willingly at any Board event at the College, and carefully scheduled his own travels to not interfere with his attendance at Board meetings each month.

A Steady Reflection of Our Commitments to One Another in Christ

By Alex Newman

On Friday, March 13, 2020 when Wycliffe announced the closure of the College, professors found themselves pivoting quickly to adapt to university life in the time of COVID-19.

While shifting courses midway through the term created a huge amount of work for faculty, “rather than complain, faculty did everything possible to make sure that our students are able to complete their terms,” says academic dean Peter Robinson, who is also professor of Proclamation, Worship and Ministry.
