Louise and Perry Dick Associate Professor of Church Education, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of Faculty, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary

Byron H. Jackson, Louise and Perry Dick, associate professor of church education, has taught at the Seminary since 1986. His areas of teaching include congregational dynamics, faith perspectives, teaching methods, program administration, and education theory. He is especially interested in helping students explore ways people learn through reflection on their everyday experiences. As director of field education from 1986 to 2007, he was responsible for an essential aspect of the Seminary’s program. The strong relationships the Seminary maintains with churches and agencies through student placements provide a variety of opportunities for field-based learning.

In May 2007, the Board of Directors elected Jackson to the position of vice president for academic affairs and dean of faculty. He had been serving in this position as interim for the previous two years.

An ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), he has served congregations in North Carolina and Kentucky. He worked on the staff of the General Assembly for eight years before joining the faculty. He and his wife live near the Seminary in Highland Park.

*Louise H. Dick and her husband Perry J. Dick, were business, community, and religious leaders in Pittsburgh for more than four decades. Mr. Dick founded Trumball Corporation and P.J. Dick Incorporated which together have dominated the Pittsburgh construction market. Subsequent to Mr. Dick’s death in 1989, Mrs. Dick assumed the role of chairperson of the boards of the companies, together with her sons-in-law, and continued the companies’ impressive growth and performance. Mrs. Dick served two terms on the Pittsburgh Theological Seminary Board.
