Rev. Sherri E. Barnes joins Pfeiffer University as associate director for university and church relations and associate pastor for The Village Church

Sherri Barnes 2 resizedRev. Sherri E. Barnes, a Christian educator and ordained United Methodist elder from the Western North Carolina United Methodist Conference (WNCUMC), has joined Pfeiffer University as associate director for university and church relations and associate pastor for The Village Church.

In this newly created role, Rev. Barnes will work strategically with Pfeiffer's board of trustees, faculty, staff and key alumni in several ways. Specifically, her objectives will be to further develop relationships with and create programming for United Methodist churches that enhance the professional effectiveness of church leaders, introduce prospective students and their families to Pfeiffer, and generate support for Pfeiffer programs that help students become principled Christian leaders regardless of their chosen major.


Globetrotting faculty and students teach, learn and serve abroad

Several Pfeiffer faculty members have taken their talents abroad and are teaching courses in other countries this summer.  Among the distinguished faculty are Drs. Uli Froelich, Chris Howard and Anne Murray.

Chris Howard
, assistant professor of business administration, is teaching leadership and organizational behavior at the University of Mainz in Mainz, Germany. Instructing students from Germany, France, Russia and Spain is allowing him to stay current in the global management practices he teaches in Pfeiffer's classrooms.

“Teaching in this international environment has taught me new things about the commonalities and differences between U.S. students and those from other cultural backgrounds. I've learned several new team concepts and ways to better communicate that I will definitely bring back with me to Pfeiffer this fall.”

Anne Murray, professor of organizational management and Fulbright Award recipient, is preparing to teach graduate students in Bucharest, Romania at the National University of Political Studies and Public Administration.  There, she will teach courses in organizational behavior and human resources, courses she teaches at Pfeiffer's Charlotte campus.

Although she will not begin teaching until the fall, she has begun learning Romanian and collecting materials regarding the classes she has been charged with teaching.

“I enjoy creating and facilitating a discussion wherein members of the class are learning from me, one another and their own critical thinking.”

Uli Froelich, who coordinates international experiences for Pfeiffer's business and health administration graduate programs, led a trip to Germany in May for students in the Master's of Health Administration program. The group visited several German hospitals, clinics and other healthcare facilities, including Juliasspital, a home for the elderly in Wurzburg.

According to Dr. Froelich, “In a culturally interdependent environment, it's vital to know how American delivery systems not only differ from but complement others around the world.”
