Dr. Mark Husbands

Vice President for Academic Affairs 



In my capacity as Vice President for Academic Affairs, I am privileged to work with Northwestern College's remarkable faculty, students, and staff. Northwestern College is a vital Christian Liberal Arts College in the Reformed tradition. We are thrilled to attract and educate a diverse body of students from many Christian traditions. In addition, because we believe that Jesus Christ is the light of the world, we warmly invite  students from various Christian traditions. Our talented and dedicated faculty lead Northwestern College students in the discovery of lives of purpose and meaning.


academic appointments

My academic career has afforded me the opportunity to occupy a number of administrative and academic appointments in both Canada and the U.S.


administrative Affairs Team

Northwestern College embodies a unique commitment to courageous and faithful learning. This leads us to pursue the unity, meaning, and purpose of all things in Christ (cf. Ephesians 1). I am honored to work with an outstanding administrative team. Together we seek to advance the quality and success of Northwestern College's academic program.



I would love to have the opportunity to meet you when I am speaking off campus or attending a conference. I regularly present on the mission and identity of the college, and often deliver presentations on particular challenges facing Christian Higher Ed. Whenever possible, I provides copies of the slide-deck of each of these presentations. You can access presentation slides or learn more about upcoming and past presentations by clicking on the button below.


A Christian Vision of the Liberal Arts

Learning is generative. We are called to produce cultures and work towards the flourishing of all to the glory of God. Seeking unity, meaning, and purpose in Christ (cf. Ephesians 1).
