Claire Henry
Professor of Women's Leadership Studies

Dr. Claire Henry has lived in three countries: Guyana, Jamaica, and the United States, each of which she calls home because of the relationships God has afforded her. Her love of teaching at both the graduate and undergraduate levels for the past 30 years springs directly from the influence of Christian teachers who have impacted her life, especially while in high school and university. Upon graduation from Michigan State University, she returned to Jamaica Theological Seminary to teach and expand the school to become a Christian liberal arts college. Her subsequent experiences working in Christian higher education as a professor and administrator have sharpened her appetite for service to and in the local church. Her life journey is summed up in Lamentations 3:22-24. Great is the faithfulness of our God!
