Sorensen replaces academic vice president John Brunt as acting interim president.
Brunt had been serving as interim president since a replacement for former WWC president W.G. Nelson has not been found.
Brunt is positive about Sorensen's arrival, as they worked together during Sorensen's previous years at WWC.
I have tremendous admiration for him," said Brunt, who is in his thirty-first year at WWC.
Nelson and Brunt were called by the Washington State lawyers to testify in April of 1999 in defense of WWC's academic integrity, and that students are not subjected to "coercive indoctrination" at WWC.
Later, the judge also noted: "None of the instruction offered in any religion courses required at any of the colleges or universities is devotional in nature or designed to induce faith and belief in the student…" The summary was of concern as some thought that Nelson and Brunt were not fully supporting WWC and its mission in their statements at the trial.
Brunt himself acknowledged the difference between their testimony and what came out in the judge's opinion."The two-page [judge's] statement was disturbing," he said.Brunt, before signing his affidavit that was drafted by one of the lawyers from Washington State, crossed out a statement that said, "There is no limitation or restriction on what faculty at Walla Walla College can teach," which was nearly identical to the statement that came out in the judge's summary (see above).
Pascoe also noted that concerns about Brunt's workload were raised at presidential search committee meetings prior to the Sept. 10 board meeting, and these may have played a part in replacing Brunt as acting interim president.
Brunt was notified Sept. 9 at 9 p.m. that the issue would arise at the next morning's meeting.Although certain members of the college board and its executive committee had known about this issue since mid-August, they waited while the conference attorney, David Duncan, found more information regarding the case before talking to Brunt.
Even through Sorensen has been named interim president; questions still remain regarding the actions taken by NPUC administration regarding Brunt's faculty status.
There are said to be alumni groups rallying to support Brunt and the rest of the WWC faculty, though no official source could confirm this.Some alumni and constituents of WWC agree that the college has been harassed by NPUC leadership without merit.
"Walla Walla College is and has always been a huge inspiration in the lives of many of us who graduated from here," said one 1994 alumnus."I think WWC is being unnecessarily targeted by certain individuals who don't want to see it succeed."
It remains to be seen who will brave the conditions and agree to become WWC president permanently.
