Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy has chosen Dr. Jeremy Flowers to fill its newly created position of Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. In this role, Dr. Flowers will be responsible for advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion across all CHCA campuses, as a critical strategic priority of the school.
“The appointment of Dr. Flowers further solidifies CHCA’s commitment to creating a diverse and inclusive school community, where our faculty, students, and families feel welcomed, included, and valued,” said Randy Brunk, CHCA’s Head of School.
Dr. Flowers is a current CHCA parent with two young children at CHCA’s Armleder campus, where he also serves as a member of the Armleder Committee. He brings extensive experience to this new role, having spent nearly a decade working in higher education in the offices of admissions, advancement and student development as well as having served as an adjunct instructor. Dr. Flowers also currently serves as the Senior Minister of the Gray Road Church of Christ in Cincinnati, Ohio. The school will benefit from his unique combination of academic pedigree and pastoral passion to his role at CHCA.
“Dr. Flowers has a charismatic presence, a quick sense of humor, and a warm personality; he is also a good listener and a gifted rhetorician. His views on diversity, equity, and inclusion are rooted in Scripture and a theological understanding of how God calls us to be one. From creating and cultivating a diverse culture to actively listening to our students, faculty, alumni, and parents, Dr. Flowers has much to offer our CHCA community as we grow together,” said Dr. Dean Nicholas, CHCA’s Assistant Head of School.
Dr. Flowers will assist in furthering CHCA’s long-term strategic vision of growing diversity, equity, and inclusion within the school community. This includes not only ensuring equal access to critical development, training, and leadership opportunities, but also establishing relationships with community leaders and organizations that share CHCA’s core values and advance the school’s diversity and inclusion goals. “I am both honored and humbled to serve as CHCA’s inaugural leader in the areas of diversity, equity, and inclusion. I am further excited to serve as a catalyst in propelling CHCA to being a leader amongst peer institutions as it relates to developing and cultivating an environment of inclusion within our school community,” Dr. Flowers shared.
Dr. Flowers received his BS (Religious Education) from Southwestern Christian College. From there he went on to receive his MS (Family Studies, Human Behavior & Development) from Amberton University, and his EdD (Organizational Leadership/Management) from Argosy University. He is also a motivational speaker and published author.
