Edward Blews Jr., president of the Association of Independent Colleges and Universities of Michigan, has been appointed the next president of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities. He begins the new position Jan. 1, 2013. Blews hasn't previously represented Christian colleges and universities as such -- the association is made up of 116 regionally accredited Christian colleges and universities that hire only Christians as full-time faculty and staff. But the Michigan association has religious colleges as members and Blews received his undergraduate degree from Seattle Pacific University, a member of the council, and previously served on the council's governing board. Three members of the council are also members of the Michigan group.
Paul Corts, the current president, is retiring at the end of this year.
