Matthew Potts Faculty Spotlight
Matthew Ichihashi Potts, MDiv ’08, PhD ’13, didn’t plan on becoming Pusey Minister at Memorial Church, but service has always been at the heart of his work.
Potts, who also serves as Plummer Professor of Christian Morals, joined the faculty of divinity in 2013. He studies the thought and practice of contemporary Christian communities through attention to diverse literary, theological, and liturgical texts.
Potts believes that serving the multifaceted University community will involve a lot of listening and collaboration, and he is hopeful about working with other religious leaders and chaplains on campus to cultivate a religious space where people can celebrate each other’s differences in a real way.
