Rev. Dr. Mai-Anh Le Tran

Rev. Dr. Mai-Anh Le Tran of Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary is the Vice President for Academic Affairs and Academic Dean and Associate Professor of Religious Education and Practical Theology.

Vocationally, she sees herself as a scholar for academia and the church; a teacher who aspires to be “leading learner”; an academic who understands that her embodied self is a palimpsest of multiple and contradictory worlds; a person of faith whose Christian commitments are buttressed by lessons from ecumenism, religious pluralism, and intercultural realities. She understands teaching as leadership, guided by an ethic of care, respect, and curiosity for self, others, and the world. She considers learning a risk-taking (and inevitably painful) adventure in which we pursue knowledge (information), ground self in foundations of integrity (formation), and commit to live and act in ways that ensures essential well-being for all and for this planet (transformation).
