Mark Hensley

Archer Hall Director

Mark Hensley, from Chicago Heights, IL, has been the director of Siler Hall for “several years.” He had already been a resident assistant for three years when he graduated from Cumberland College in 1991.

In addition to his work as director, Mark serves as the Campus Safety-Security Coordinator. He has taught international students as part of the intensive English program. Mark has also served as sponsor of the academic team and been involved with local praise music. Fellow director James McKnight, who previously served as a resident assistant in Siler Hall, commented that “every once in a while you would hear him try one of his guitars out in the office. He is much more talented than he would ever let on.”

Mark’s favorite memories at the University of the Cumberlands include meeting students, making friends, and discussing the meaning of life. More than anything else, he wants to be sure that his residents know that “Jesus loves you.”
