President Michael Lindsay

The inauguration of Taylor University President D. Michael Lindsay Ph.D. is scheduled for Friday, October 8, at 10 am, in the Kesler Student Activities Center Fieldhouse. The public is invited to attend.

Lindsay, who for the past 10 years served as President of Gordon College in Wenham, Massachusetts, was selected by Taylor’s Board of Trustees after a nationwide search. He will assume the presidency on August 16 and follows Dr. Paige Comstock Cunningham, who served for the past two years as Taylor’s Interim President.

Prior to his tenure at Gordon, Lindsay was a member of the sociology faculty at Rice University, where he won multiple awards both for his teaching and academic research.

He is the author of two dozen scholarly publications and numerous books, including Faith in the Halls of Power, which was nominated for the nonfiction Pulitzer Prize in 2007, and his award-winning View from the Top, which has been translated into Chinese and Japanese. His most recent book, Hinge Moments, was released in 2021 with InterVarsity Press.

Lindsay earned his Ph.D. in sociology from Princeton University and graduate theological degrees from Wycliffe Hall at Oxford University and Princeton Theological Seminary. He is a summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Baylor University where he has been named Outstanding Young Alumnus.

Lindsay and his wife Rebecca have been married for 25 years and are parents of three daughters: Elizabeth (17), Caroline (11) and Emily (11). Rebecca Lindsay is a teacher and speaker who will serve as Taylor’s Ambassador for the University.
