2013 Recipient: Young-Ihl Chang 87PhD

Young-Ihl Chang

Young-Ihl Chang was the nineteenth president of the Presbyterian College and Theological Seminary, a distinguished educational institution in South Korea, until his recent retirement. Prior to being named president in 2009, he served as a faculty member, director and dean of various units of the institution.

Chang has built on a strong foundation to continue the excellence of PCTS and continued Emory’s strong connections with South Korea and its educational institutions, director of the Graduate Division of Religion Carol Newsom says.
