Admissions Staff

Jim Madden

Senior Admissions Specialist – Battle Creek, Kalamazoo sites

Hometown: Kalamazoo, Mich.

Education: MA in Family Studies from SAU, BA in Christian Ministry Leadership at SAU (in progress), BBA and MBA degrees from Western Michigan University.

Interests: Family related activities, (my wife Susan and I have been blessed with four children including three internationally adopted from S. Korea, India and Hong Kong); continuing education; Bible and pleasure reading; exercise & nutrition; landscaping; and home improvement projects.

Testimony: At age 25, my wife and I both accepted our Lord Jesus Christ as our personal savior. Over time I felt a calling to work in some area advancing His kingdom. The opportunity to join SAU in 2004, and to work with adult students, is the fulfillment of that calling. And it has been one of the most satisfying experiences of my life. I’ve seen so many adult learners radically change their lives in a very positive way by attending SAU. The diversity at SAU, and the high value its leadership places each student, alum, employee, and the communities we serve is awesome. I’ve never experienced anything quite like it elsewhere as a student or employee, and I want to share the SAU opportunity with as many people as I can!
