Kyle Lantz serves as the director of the Social Concerns Seminars Program.

His role involves close work with community partners, student leaders, and University colleagues to coordinate this curricular program.

Kyle joined the center staff in September of 2013 as the seminars assistant director. His prior roles included work in Residence Life at Whitworth University in Spokane, Wash. and as  resident program director for Taylor University's Irish Studies Program in Greystones, Ireland. 

Kyle graduated from Taylor University (Upland, Ind.) with a B.S. in Management and M.A. in Higher Education and Student Development. His master’s thesis is entitled “The Experiences of Black Students at a Predominantly White Faith-based Institution.” His interests and experience include college student development, racial justice, peace and reconciliation, community and neighborhood development, the circle process, cross-cultural learning and engagement, and experiential learning.

He and his wife Kelsey and their two children participate as neighbors and involved community members in the city of South Bend. Their time usually centers around a smattering of the following: the Near Northwest Neighborhood, foster care, church, walks in the woods, basketball, and Transformation Ministries (an organization serving youth in South Bend).
