Welcome to Shepherd University!
I am pleased to serve as your new president with the many new challenges ahead for Shepherd University and its future growth. As we all know, change is constant and while we have many exciting journeys to accomplish together, we will always remember that our students are our number one priority and that all our future accomplishments could not be possible without our many dedicated faculty, staff, and students.
I look forward to meeting these challenges as we journey on our new path of continuous improvement while we strive to be a model university that, as stated in our mission statement, “…prepare professional leaders to improve the world at every level from the church and community levels to the realm of world culture.”
