Wycliffe College Professors at home - Glen Taylor, Peter Robinson, Ephraim Radner, and Marion Taylor

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.

Remembering Bob Haslam

Bob Haslam was an important figure in the life of the College in the late 1990s. This was a period of significant change at Wycliffe, as the Board had recently been restructured from a body that numbered up to 50 to a much smaller group of 18 Trustees. It was also when the College was looking for new leadership, following the resignation of Principal Michael Poutney in 1998.
