Nate Addington currently serves as the Director of Civic and Social Responsibility after having held various positions at the College since the 2012-2013 academic year, including Interim Director of Interfaith Campus Ministry and Campus Minister.
Throughout his career Nate has been interested in what motivates people from different backgrounds and identities to come together in community. Specifically, he loves exploring how he, and the students he works with, can be intentional in helping those communities move forward towards a sense of equity and justice.
He has particular interests in creating long term partnerships in the local community, while also wrestling with larger issues; such as international immigration policy and reform. This latter passion often reveals itself in the various service and immersion trips he has facilitated in Central America since 2006.
In addition to his time at The College of Wooster, Nate enjoys reading (he tries to read 52 books each year) and if he is not doing that, there is a good chance you can find him outside cycling and hiking with his beautiful wife, Rachel, and their exceptionally handsome son, Athen.
