At the June meeting of the Board of Regents of Oxford Graduate School in Dayton, Dr. Richard A. Humphrey, Ph.D, was appointed chief executive officer and president.

Oxford Graduate School's mission to integrate Christian teaching in personal life, family, the community, and the workplace has attracted students from 36 countries and every state in the U.S.

Humphrey's education and career are suited perfectly to lead the school in fulfilling its mission. After receiving a bachelor's degree at Cornell College in Iowa and a bachelor of divinity from Drew Theological Seminary, he studied church history and was awarded a doctorate from Drew University.

Following this extensive education, Humphrey pursued an academic career, holding positions at Baldwin Wallace College (Berea, Ohio), Philander Smith College (Arkansas), University of Arkansas, and Appalachian State University (Boone, North Carolina).

From 1959 to 1998 Humphrey served as minister at several southeastern Methodist Churches while also teaching at Oxford Graduate school from 1988 to 1998.

Having held various administrative positions at the school afford him unique insights in enriching the school's masters and doctoral programs.

During the last eight months while he served as interim CEO/president, Oxford Graduate School received 10-year accreditation by TRACS, Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools, grew significantly stronger financially, and was blessed with a $205,000 gift to establish an endowment fund.
