Bryan College announces the addition of Dr. Douglas Mann as provost and vice president of Academics.  

A Bryan College alum, Dr. Mann – who holds a Ph.D. in History from the University of Georgia, a M.A. in Christian Thought, Emphases in History and Theology from Trinity International University, and a B.A. in History and Bible from Bryan College – holds a long history with Bryan College and said he looks forward to bringing his extensive experience to his alma mater. 

With a career in higher education spanning over two decades, Dr. Mann most recently held the position of administrative dean for Graduate Programs, vice provost for Graduate Education and dean of the Graduate School at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va. 

Additionally, Dr. Mann has experience both in teaching and administrative roles and holds years of senior leadership and planning experience, including decision-making for academic programs, academic relations, academic budgets and facilities planning, and policy. 

“Bryan College has been an important part of both my personal and professional life," said Dr. Mann. "My parents met at Bryan. I met my wife Susi while a student at Bryan. My own views on the value and place for Christian higher education were shaped as a student at Bryan as the faculty and administration poured their lives into my education. I am excited to serve the students, faculty, and administration at Bryan as we all seek to further the mission of ‘Educating students to become servants of Christ to make a difference in today's world.’” 

As provost and vice president of Academics at Bryan College, Dr. Mann will provide leadership and direction for students, faculty, and staff as well as assist with many of upcoming efforts included in the College’s ‘2018 Making a Difference: Vision to Reality’ initiative.

“We are very excited to welcome Dr. Mann back to his alma mater as our new provost and vice president of Academic here at Bryan,” said President Stephen D. Livesay. “Dr. Mann has significant professional experience in higher education both in teaching and in administration. He knows Bryan well and will be able to quickly adjust to his new role in leading our academic team. But more than all of his qualifications and experience is our shared mission of placing ‘Christ above All’.”
