He replaces Lisa Richmond who recently announced her appointment as Vice President of Research at Cardus, a Christian think tank based in Ontario.
Ericksen attended Carroll University and Wheaton College Graduate School, and joined the staff of the Billy Graham Center Archives in 1982. He was appointed director in 2002. He also served as the interim executive director of the Billy Graham Center between 2013 and 2016.
A nationwide search for the next permanent dean will be launched later in the year.
