    Have you considered Ret. General David Petraeus? Sorry, I just couldn’t help myself.

    Did you know that Kim Bobo is transitioning out of leadership of Interfaith Worker Justice?

    We’re all sad but it’s all good.

    As the founder, she wants to let someone else take it into the next stage so that she can do the same in her own career.

    I don’t know what degrees or qualifications you are looking for but, since I am on the IWJ board, your description made me think of Kim’s leadership in so many of the areas you listed. I think she could bring an amazing perspective to students and to the whole community with her experience.

    She probably has a lot of teaching offers, and I know that she is an organizer an activist at heart, but when I saw this position, it jumped out as different, much because I follow you and see what you’re about.

    ie: that you are a Calvinist

    Peace and blessings.
