Dave Thomas Named Distinguished Faculty Lecturer
Dave Thomas, professor of practical theology and apologetics and former dean of the Walla Walla University School of Theology, has been named as the Distinguished Faculty Lecturer for the 2020–21 academic year. Thomas was chosen for this honor based on his long and distinguished career in teaching at WWU and his positive influence on the lives and careers of WWU theology and religion majors and the overall student population.
Thomas’ classes in systematic theology and issues of God and faith have helped students grapple with some of the most challenging questions about God and have reached the needs of many students who are exploring questions of faith. The Distinguished Faculty Lecturer is a WWU faculty member who is distinguished in leadership, teaching and scholarship; who is involved in governance, church and community service; and who has something important to say. Thomas will address the university community publicly during his Distinguished Faculty Lecture on Sunday, Nov. 8, at 7 p.m.
