Bio

Dr. Graham McKeague serves as the associate dean of human services and associate professor of educational leadership for Cornerstone University's Professional & Graduate Studies division. He also serves on the Student Success committee at PGS, which seeks to enhance resources and opportunities for students to thrive while pursuing their education. He has worked at Cornerstone since 2010, where he began as part of the administrative team at Grand Rapids Theological Seminary.

"Teaching is a privilege. It is rewarding to see students learn new ideas, concepts or theories, then seek to apply what they have learned to their own life. A learner-centered teaching approach allows students to bring their experience and prior knowledge into the classroom, and acknowledges that students are motivated to grow and change as a result of their education. This type of education is important in shaping students to be successful in all areas of life."

McKeague's interest and background in cross-cultural education stems from his work with Youth With A Mission training schools in Los Angeles, Calif. He continues to work with churches and other organizations to help train and equip people for cross-cultural work. He also has experience teaching as an adjunct professor at Grand Rapids Theological Seminary and Michigan State University in the areas of intercultural studies, cultural intelligence and education.
