It is a privilege to serve as the President of Cairn University, my alma mater. It is also a privilege to personally share with you who we are and what we are doing as we walk a different path. Let me encourage you to visit the website often and my From the President pages. The articles, chapel messages, blogs, and other items will give you a good sense of the mission and vision of the University as well as a window into the latest developments, plans, projects and ideas. These are exciting days at Cairn and I hope you will be encouraged by what you see and hear.
