Dear CRCDS Community,

I would like to take this opportunity to share with you the news that, Rev. John R. Tyson, Ph.D. will be retiring from CRCDS at the end of this academic year.

From 2010 – 2012 Dr. Tyson served as Visiting Professor of Methodist Studies. From 2012 to present he has served as Professor of Church History and Director of United Methodist Studies. During this time, he has authored multiple books and articles, including School of Prophets: A Bicentennial History of Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School.

Dr. Tyson is a dedicated member of the faculty and ecclesial leader whose service has been a blessing to many. While we are sad to see Dr. Tyson go, we wish him the very best in his retirement. Please join me in thanking Dr. Tyson for his 12 years of service to our community. We look forward to celebrating Dr. Tyson’s myriad contributions to CRCDS, academia and the church over the remainder of this academic year. Information will be sent out at a future time and posted to our website.
