After officially taking my new role as President at Belmont on June 1, 2021, I shared my perspective on our work to “let hope about” with readers in the Tennessean.

“In the face of multiple pandemics, people of faith—and Christian institutions like Belmont University—can be leaders in reweaving the social fabric.”

But there is hope. Why? Because the source of our hope does not come from within–it is rooted in who God is.
