SANTEE, Calif. – On Monday, September 9, 2019, the San Diego Christian College Board of Trustees announced the appointment of Dr. Kevin Corsini as the 11th president of San Diego Christian College. Corsini brings spiritual passion, institutional vision, leadership experience, and personal humility. Dr. Corsini has a vast amount of experience in higher education and leadership. Having spent time in multiple countries cultivating collaborative partnerships, outreach, and programs, he is passionate about International Outreach and Ministry. Dr. Corsini will assume the role of President beginning September 16, 2019.
“I believe that God has great plans for this wonderful school and I am excited to serve alongside the amazing faculty and staff on campus,” Corsini remarked, “It is my great desire to see Christ glorified in and through the lives of our students.”
During his previous positions at Liberty University, ranging from Instructor to Executive Vice Provost, Corsini held vital roles in teams that dramatically expanded enrollment, developed and established multiple academic programs, successfully launched new academic facilities, and courageously led thousands of faculty and staff members.
Phil Sparling stated, “As Chairman of the Board of Trustees and SDCC alumni, I am personally thrilled about God’s provision and the future of our great college. We believe God has brought Dr. Corsini to us ‘for such a time as this.’”
Co-founder Dr. Beverly LaHaye, commented, “It was a pleasure to meet Dr. Kevin Corisni during the time he was visiting at SDCC. I was encouraged to hear about his passion and success at Liberty University and I am thrilled to have him as our next President of San Diego Christian College. I ask that you join me and the Board of Trustees in praying for Dr. Corsini and our college. My husband Tim LaHaye had a vision for a Christian college that develops students academically, socially, professionally, and spiritually and I am confident Dr. Corsini will carry on this legacy.”
The appointment of Dr. Corsini follows a four-month global search. The search committee was comprised of trustees, staff, faculty, and alumni. The Presidential Search Committee recommended several finalists to the Board of Trustees for further consideration. Dr. Kevin and his wife Dr. Marlene Corsini came to campus during the search process to meet with staff, faculty, and various institutional constituencies.
Enrique Sanchez, J.D., SDCC Trustee, and Presidential Search Co-Chair commented, “It is with great joy and anticipation that I join the rest of my fellow board members in our common excitement to welcome Dr. Kevin Corsini to assume the position of President of San Diego Christian College. His character, competence, and collective experience in academics and leadership make him the ideal man for this task.” Dr. Sanchez continued, “These three attributes are overshadowed only by his commitment to our Lord Jesus Christ and His Word, his care and concern for his family, and his courage to sacrificially make decisions. His charisma delivered in clarity of thought and speech makes him perfectly suited for the presidential role. Our prayers are focused on our Lord’s provision of wisdom, guidance, and a steadfast heart of integrity for Dr. Corsini.”
Corsini holds a B.B.A. in Human Resource Management from the University of Georgia, a Th.M. in Pastoral Leadership from Dallas Theological Seminary, and a Ph.D. in Professional Counseling from Liberty University. He and his wife Dr. Marlene Corsini, have three children and they enjoy adventuring into the back-country in their ’99 Jeep Wrangler for wilderness camping.
Dr. Corsini stated, “Leadership is a privilege afforded by the Lord, and I am humbled and honored to be given this opportunity at San Diego Christian College.”
