This year, The Master’s University inducted its second class of “professor emeritus” appointees. The title is bestowed upon select former faculty members in recognition of exceptional contributions to TMU.
Benefits of the position include faculty-level access to TMU events and the Mustang Grill. An honoree’s TMU email address is also reinstated, giving their colleagues and past students an easy way to reconnect with them. This year’s five recipients join Dr. John Hotchkiss and Dr. Paul Plew, who were selected in 2022 as TMU’s first professors emeriti.
“These five were distinguished for their academic excellence, long-term service to the University, and most importantly, their commitment to Christ,” says Dr. Gregg Frazer, dean of the John P. Stead School of Humanities and architect of TMU’s professor emeritus program. “They were loved and respected by their faculty colleagues, and they, as well as their contributions to TMU, are missed.”
Here are this year’s recipients:
Hutchison joined The Master’s in 2003 and served as professor of New Testament. He was a pastor in Frenchtown, Montana, for 15 years and a professor in Talbot School of Theology’s New Testament department for 13 years before coming to The Master’s. He also served on the board of directors for Montana Bible College and as president of the Montana Regional division of IFCA International.
Owen earned his bachelor’s degree from Los Angeles Baptist College and his master’s from California State University, Dominguez Hills. He joined The Master’s as a faculty member in 1978 and served as an associate professor of history. His particular specialty was church history, but he also taught courses in European and American history, as well as apologetics.
Englin served at The Master’s beginning in 1981, teaching subjects such as animal biology, organismic biology, and astronomy as a professor of biological sciences. He was a member of the Creation Research Society, Southern California Academy of Sciences, Yellowstone Association, and Au Sable Institute of Environmental Studies.
Mays served as a professor of piano at TMU. He has played solo recitals throughout the United States, Europe, Canada, and Great Britain for more than 40 years. He was on staff at the Conservatory of Music at Wheaton College for 19 years before coming to The Master’s in 1986. Mays’ latest recording is titled “Reflection & Praise,” a series of hymn arrangements for piano.
