Dean of International Students and Scholar Services
Sarah Chun joined Calvin Theological Seminary in 2012 as the Associate Dean of Students and International Student Advisor. In 2019 she was promoted to the role of Dean of International Students and Scholar Services.
Sarah was born in South Korea, and at the age of six immigrated to Grand Rapids with her family. Sarah graduated from Calvin College with a major in Psychology and received her MSW from Michigan State University. Prior to joining Calvin Seminary, Sarah worked at Bethany Christian Services as an adoption counselor. She and her late husband, an ordained CRC pastor, served at Han-Bit CRC in Rochester, MI; Anaheim CRC, Anaheim, CA; and Covenant CRC in North Haledon, NJ.
“Calvin Seminary seeks to invest in the lives of the students not only in terms of academic learning, but also in their spiritual growth and emotional well-being. As a community of people who come from all around the world, we strive to be Jesus’ hands and feet as we do life together and build relationships with one another and with God. I am grateful for the opportunity to shepherd students in their calling of service to God and others.”
Outside of work, Sarah stays busy being a mom to her three children—Hope, Noah and Hannah.
