Office of the Dean & Rector

The primary role of the Dean and Rector is to provide overall leadership of PLTS and in its many collaborative relationships, both within and beyond the seminary.

The Dean's position is equivalent to the deans of the other graduate schools of Cal Lutheran, and reports to the Provost Leanne Nielson, and to President Chris Kimball in matters of church relations.
