The three-day weekend of meetings started Friday when some 90 pastors, members, teachers, students and church leaders gathered in Takoma Park, Md., for Washington Adventist University’s (WAU) constituency session. Reports from President Weymouth Spence and an independent auditor reflected an upward trend for the university that some five years ago struggled financially.
Every year, the Association of Adventist Colleges & Universities (AACU) holds meetings, where the Presidents, Chief Financial Officers, and Provosts of all SDA Colleges and Universities meet. This year’s event was held here at WAU on March 21 – 22.

Takoma Park, MD — The Trustees of Washington Adventist University (WAU) today voted a Memorandum of Understanding with Atlantic Union College (AUC). This MOU calls for the two institutions to work toward an agreement to establish a branch campus of Washington Adventist University at Atlantic Union College in South Lancaster, Massachusetts. WAU would lease the facilities of AUC, and become the sole provider of higher education at the New England location. All provisions are dependent upon approval from the required accrediting and regulatory agencies.
(Weymouth Spence, president of Washington Adventist University; Dave Weigley, chair of the Washington Adventist University Board of Trustees; Don King, chair of the Atlantic Union College Board of Trustees; and Norman Wendth, president of Atlantic Union College sign the Memorandum of Understanding on behalf of their institutions.)
Dr Michael Gorman (pictured) (Professor of Sacred Scripture and Dean at The Ecumenical Institute of Theology, St. Mary's Seminary & University Baltimore), who is an active member in the United Methodist Church, will be our G. Arthur Keough Lecturer in the Department of Religion at Washington Adventist University in Takoma Park, MD, on March 18 (7:00 p.m.) and 19 (10:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m) in Richards Hall.
Dr. Gorman has written numerous books on Apostle Paul, on theology and hermeneutics, ethics and most recently a commentary on the Book of Revelation.
