This year Whitley welcomed Rev Dr Ian Dicks to the faculty, and his arrival marks a new chapter in collaboration with Global Interaction. Ian has served in Malawi for the past 20 years, and he will continue to do so for a portion of each year.

Ian has undertaken ground-breaking research on the culture, worldview and language of the Yawo people and is currently working on a dictionary of that language. Ian will teach from his experience in relating to Muslim people, contextual mission, and in intercultural competence and communication.
