The Center for Anglican Communion Studies: Update on Staffing

Date: July 19, 2021

This week the Center for Anglican Communion Studies (CACS) is pleased to be hosting the Dean’s Commentary. Each day we will aim to give you a different view of our recent and future work.  Today we are delighted to update you on our current staffing.

As you may have read in the recent press release, Dr. Katherine Grieb started on July 1 as our new director. Dr. Grieb has been a long-time advisor, supporter, and friend of CACS, and has deep and wide respect from theologians and leaders across the Communion. Having worked closely with us in the transition time over the past six months, her official start has been seamless and we are “off to the races.” She’s bringing all sorts of wonderful ideas and plans to CACS that you will read about later this week. Dr. Grieb’s new office is Meade 104 and she can be reached at x1740 or at

Also somewhat new to CACS is Courtney Henderson-Adams. Courtney began as administrative coordinator in April and brings an enthusiastic spirit and important administrative and communications skills to the job.  She is a 2019 graduate of Pace University in New York City, with a major in communications, and is currently completing an M.A. in Religious Studies at Athens State University. She is really looking forward to the upcoming school year here at VTS and getting a better understanding and feeling for community life. Come and say hi to Courtney in Meade 105 or be in touch at x1735 or at

Hartley Wensing continues in CACS, now as associate director. Hartley has worked in CACS for almost eight years and now focuses on managing the implementation of the CACS vision and mission. She enjoys learning with and from students, faculty, staff, and partners around the Communion, supporting the three priorities of CACS: equipping international community, empowering intercultural leaders, and enriching Episcopal-Anglican identity. Come talk to Hartley about your ideas for intercultural programming on campus in Meade 101 or be in touch with her at or x1860.

See you back here tomorrow for an update on CACS’s current fellows.
