Dr. Paul Pribbenow, Augsburg College's 11th president, begins term

July, 2006

Dr. Paul Pribbenow begins his term as the 11th president of Augsburg College this week. He succeeds William V. Frame, Augsburg president since 1997.

The College conducted an extensive national search for its next president and chose Dr. Pribbenow as the right man for the job. “We are confident that Dr. Pribbenow has all the qualities of leadership and passion needed to continue Dr. Frame’s work at Augsburg College,” said Jean Taylor, chair of the Augsburg College Board of Regents. “He has already demonstrated that he is an accomplished communicator, a person who can demonstrate his own sense of Christian vocation, a skilled administrator, and a visible leader, actively participating in the life of the campus and surrounding community.”

“This is the work I believe I was called to do, and I look forward to serving as Augsburg’s next president,” Pribbenow said. “I firmly believe that my experiences and commitments are a remarkable fit for the mission and needs of the college.”

Dr. Pribbenow and his wife, Abigail, have two children. They have made the move to the Twin Cities and are in temporary living quarters as they await the completion of renovations to the Augsburg House.

The Augsburg community welcomes the Pribbenow family with open arms as it begins this new chapter and looks forward to the bright future ahead.
