Longtime Liberty professor retires after 37 years of service
|Dr. C. Daniel Kim, a distinguished research professor in the School of Divinity, was recognized by President Jerry Falwell on Tuesday, July 14, for his 37 years of service.|
Kim has been with Liberty since 1978. During his 37 years of service to the university, Kim has taught numerous courses in church history and theology, impacting thousands of students both at Liberty and in Korea. Within the School of Divinity, Kim has served as director of Korean student enrollment and director of the Korean language assistance program.
In 2015, Kim was featured locally in The News & Advance for his efforts in recruiting more than 2,000 Korean students to Liberty, which has impacted the makeup of the Lynchburg community. The article described Kim as a person who is “working to preserve and promote a conservative, evangelical approach to Christianity on the peninsula.”
On Tuesday, President Jerry Falwell recognized Kim’s accomplishments, calling him a “great asset” in Liberty’s mission to train Champions for Christ.
“We thank you so much, and we are honored and blessed to have you as part of Liberty University for all of these years,” he said.
