Dr. Lindsay Hislop joined the faculty of CIU in 1983.  He was raised in southern Scotland and southern Ontario, Canada, and now lives in the southern United States. Hislop worked in the engineering field for 15 years (mostly in Canada) before pursuing an academic career. He serves as an elder in his church, where he teaches regularly and preaches sometimes.  
Hislop is married to his wonderful wife, Pam, and has two terrific children, Holly, who lives in Canada, and Doug, who lives in Columbia. His four grandchildren, Isaac, Madeline, Lindsay, and Dolan, are also pretty special. He likes doing carpentry and odd jobs around the house.
