Thomas Cornman, Ph.D., joined Cedarville University in July 2009 as academic vice president with a faculty appointment in the department of history and government. This spring, Dr. Cornman is offering American Church History to students, a class surveying the major trends, ideas, and individuals in the history of the church in America. Starting from the 1600s and progressing to the present, the course explores the roots of American theology.

"Cedarville's mission and vision prompted me to want to join this exceptional group of Christ-centered faculty," said Dr. Cornman. "The University encompasses a strong commitment to the preeminence of Christ and the authority of the Scripture, while providing students with an exceptional educational experience."

Dr. Cornman's experience includes 10 years of teaching and 17 years of management experience in higher education. As academic vice president, he is responsible for all academic departments and activities of the University and serves as its chief academic officer. He holds a Ph.D. from the University of Illinois at Chicago; an M.A. from Temple University; an M.Div. from Talbot School of Theology at Biola University; and a B.S. from Philadelphia Biblical University.
