John White Joins PTS As Dean of Students

Princeton Theological Seminary (PTS) will welcome the Reverend Dr. John E. White as the new dean of students and vice president for student relations, starting September 1.

Mr. White is not new to Princeton. From 1992 to 2000 he was pastor of the Witherspoon Street Presbyterian Church. He also previously served as dean of students and vice president for student services at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. He is a graduate of Pittsburgh Seminary with both the M.Div. and D.Min. degrees, and has served the Presbyterian Church (USA) in many capacities, including as vice moderator of Pittsburgh Presbytery.

“John has a real heart for students and he will bring energy and wisdom to our entire Seminary community, said Princeton Seminary president Craig Barnes.

Princeton Seminary, the first theological seminary founded by the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (USA), has a student body of more than 500 students in six degree programs. They come from 44 states in the union and from 25 countries around the world.

The Reverend Dr. Catherine Cook Davis has been promoted to associate dean of student life and director of student placement, also effective September 1.
