Andover Newton names Associate Director of Field Education


Dean Sarah Drummond has announced the appointment of the Rev. Dr. Susan Suchocki Brown to the position of Associate Director of Field Education for Supervisor/Site Support. In this part-time position she will work with Jeff Jones, Director of Ministry Studies, to enhance the field education experience of Andover Newton students.

In making the appointment, Dean Drummond, stated, “Susan is well known to us as one who has taught in the Professor-Practitioner Program since its inception. Her pastoral ministry and chaplaincy experience, her academic work on anti-racism ministries, and her knowledge of ministry formation in the Unitarian Universalist tradition will bring to Andover Newton new perspectives we need and value.” Susan also serves as the pastor of First Church in Leominster.

As Associate Director of Field Education she will be directly involved in the training of new supervisors, the support of continuing supervisors, and the review of the work of students in their field education sites.

Dr. Jones welcomed the appointment, indicating that he was looking forward to working with her in the continuing development of Andover Newton’s field education program. “We have a great tradition in field education,” he stated. “Susan brings the skill and experience that will enable us to continue to build on that tradition as we enhance the program and the way it equips students to meet both the joys and challenges of ministry in today’s world.”
