It is a great honor to serve as President of West Liberty University. I am deeply humbled by this opportunity and take enormous pride in serving our students, alumni, and community as the leader of West Virginia’s oldest institution of higher education.

Graduate programs include the Master of Arts in Education, the Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies, the Master of Professional Studies, the Master of Science in Criminology and the online MBA degrees. More programs are on the horizon.
