Established in 2005, the mission of Southwestern College
Academic Press is to support the teaching and research activities
of the College by fostering scholarly inquiry through the
selection, production, and diffusion of academic works.
The range of subjects in which the Press is interested
reflects the disciplines associated with traditional liberal
arts courses of study. This is supplemented by other
areas of current curricular or programmatic interest at
Whether submitted by members of the Southwestern College
faculty or scholars from the wider community, manuscripts
are peer reviewed, evaluated by the Director, and submitted
to the Board of Directors for action prior to the issuance
of a contract. A rigorous editorial process follows
and ensures a high quality publication.
At the current time, the Press is housed in the Southwestern
College Library so that both of the information services
may draw on common resources.
The Board of Directors includes the following:
- One member drawn from the Southwestern College Board
- One member drawn from the Southwestern College Faculty
- 5 at large members, not currently affiliated with
Southwestern College, who represent the larger international
and national scholarly and publishing communities; and
- Director of the Southwestern College Academic Press,
currently the Library Director.
Southwestern College Academic Press also publishes and
distributes BeADisciple and Habakkuk Books, both POD imprints
and wholly owned subsidiaries of the Press.
