OCU's Davies Named to Editorial Board

Dr. Mark Y. A. Davies is one of the inaugural members of the New Room Books editorial board.

Named for John Wesley’s New Room in Bristol, England, New Room Books is a reviewed academic monograph series that offers scholars from the Methodist tradition and their students a way to share their work. Wesley is considered the founder of the Methodist faith.

Davies is the Wimberly Professor of Social and Ecological Ethics and director of the World House Institute for Social and Ecological Responsibility in OCU's Petree College of Arts and Sciences.

Davies was also recently re-elected to serve a quadrennium on the University Senate of the United Methodist Church. The senate is made up of higher education professionals created by General Conference to determine which schools, colleges, universities, and theological schools meet the criteria for listing as institutions affiliated with The United Methodist Church.

Service on the senate involves two meetings each year. Senators also participate in the on-campus review of United Methodist-related institutions.
