Tom Lin Becomes InterVarsity's Eighth President

Tom Lin is the first full president of InterVarsity to be chosen from InterVarsity staff. He comes to the office of president after serving 20 years on staff, most recently as vice president and director of InterVarsity's Urbana Student Missions Conference. He was commissioned and began his work as president on August 10, 2016. Tom, his wife Nancy, and their two daughters live in Madison, Wisconsin.

Tom's appointment as president ends a transitional period that began in May of 2015, when Alec Hill stepped down as president following a diagnosis of bone marrow cancer.

Jim Lundgren was named interim president from 2015 to 2016. He has served on InterVarsity staff for more than four decades, the previous 12 years as senior vice president and director of collegiate ministries.

Alec Hill's 14-year tenure at InterVarsity was marked by one of the most significant periods of growth since InterVarsity's founding almost 75 years ago, and a vigorous cultural engagement. On February 1, 2016, Alec Hill returned to InterVarsity in his new role as president emeritus.
