Knox College is pleased to announce the promotion of the Rev. Dr. Esther Acolatse to the rank of Full Professor. Professor Acolatse joined Knox College in 2017 as Associate Professor of Pastoral Theology and Intercultural Studies. She also serves as Director of Graduate Studies.
Before joining Knox, Dr. Acolatse taught Pastoral Theology and World Christianity at Duke Divinity School in Durham, North Carolina. Esther is a graduate of the University of Ghana (BA Hons), Harvard Divinity School (MTS), and Princeton Theological Seminary (PhD).

Her teaching, research, and service are helping Knox College cultivate an intercultural community with a truly global Christian consciousness.
