College Leadership

Olivet College depends on the expertise, wisdom and passion of its leaders – the Board of Trustees, President’s Cabinet and the President – to set the pace and establish the direction of the College as it continues to grow in enrollment, programs and degrees, and through on-campus development.

Ensuring the Future of Olivet College

Olivet College leaders embody the mission and values outlined by our founding fathers. Especially, that education should be available to anyone, regardless of race, gender, background or socioeconomic circumstances. Still today, the college defines itself by who it includes, not who it excludes. We look to our leaders to ensure that the future of Olivet College is as rich as our history.
