Dr. Castleberry began his duties as academic dean in January 2003.

He is founder of the Freedom Valley Project, a community development ministry among the African-American people of Ecuador’s Chota Valley Region. Before his ministry in Ecuador, he served as associate dean for Latin America at Global University, as a missionary in El Salvador and as the AG chaplain at Princeton University.
