Emmanuel College and Knox College are pleased to announce the appointment of the Rev. Dr. Glenn J. McCullough as assistant professor. In this unique and first-ever joint-appointment through the Toronto School of Theology (TST), McCullough will divide his time equally between the two colleges in this tenure-track role. He is appointed through Emmanuel College and seconded to Knox College.
McCullough has been teaching at Emmanuel College in the Master of Pastoral Studies program for the past two years, teaching courses on spiritual care and practical theology, and has taught as a sessional instructor at Knox College from 2017-2021. He has also taught at Seneca College of Applied Arts and Technology. His teaching focus has been on using experiential pedagogies for interfaith engagement.
He completed his PhD in theology at the University of St. Michael’s College in 2019, and his research has been recognized with prestigious grants, including a SSHRC Doctoral Fellowship and SSHRC Storytellers Award.
As both a registered psychotherapist and an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church in Canada, McCullough has worked in congregational, healthcare, correctional and therapeutic settings, and brings a practitioner’s experience to his teaching.
His forthcoming book, Dreams, Ecstasy, and Wisdom: Jacob Boehme and the Spiritual Roots of Psychodynamic Therapy, is based on his PhD dissertation and will be published in the esteemed Brill Studies in Theology and Religion series.
“Glenn’s experience and dedicated service to both Emmanuel and Knox Colleges makes this collaboration all the more meaningful. His ongoing relationship with Toronto School of Theology will serve to strengthen the student experience in our popular Master of Pastoral Studies program and students will be enriched by his experience in serving communities through psychotherapy,” says Emmanuel Principal The Rev. Dr. HyeRan Kim-Cragg.
“All of us at Knox College are excited about sharing this faculty appointment with Emmanuel College. The institutional collaboration is indeed historic and both colleges will benefit greatly from Glenn’s talent as an academic, teacher and mentor,” says Knox Principal Ernest Van Eck.
