Laura Dykstra

Curriculum Lead, Instructional Faculty - Bible

Appointed 2018. Dr. Dykstra spent over 13 years in faith-based higher education before moving to Valor. Her work focused on the design and development of curriculum, allowing her to work closely with the Vice President and Academic Deans to establish processes and procedures to integrate faith, learning, and biblical principles, standardize the curriculum, move it to an online setting, and optimize it for an ever-changing student population. In her free-time, she enjoys traveling, reading, and spending time enjoying the beautiful Colorado outdoors fishing, hiking, and hunting. American history is a particular interest of hers. She is always up for some kind of adventure and has three nephews that she dotes upon.
