Bethami Dobkin (she, her, hers) is Westminster College’s 19th president. She comes to Westminster with over 30 years of teaching and leadership in higher education and a distinguished record of scholarship in media criticism, political violence, and gender studies. Dr. Dobkin is challenging Westminster to bring the strengths of a liberal arts foundation—broad knowledge, analytic thinking, ethical action—to the contemporary challenges of leadership. She believes that integrating all aspects of student life gives students the knowledge, skills, and experience to build the communities that will solve both today’s problems and those we have yet to imagine. Dr. Dobkin brings a service orientation to leadership, providing students with an inclusive and supportive education that challenges them to create, innovate, and lead with passion and integrity. She is driven by her conviction that that learning can be transformative, and that education is imperative in creating a more just, humane, and sustainable world.
