Connections: Rev. Angela Sims, the new president of Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School

Oct 2, 2019

We sit down with the new president of Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School, Rev. Angela Sims. Sims is the institution’s first female president, and the first African American woman to lead a Rochester-area college. Her term began July 1, after the retirement of Rev. Marvin McMickle.

Sims is a Baptist minister and author, who says one of her goals is to build on Colgate’s social justice efforts. She joins us in studio to share her vision, her goals, and to address the role of faith and religion in the current social and political climate.
