Greetings, Monarch Nation!

Greetings, Monarch Nation!

It is truly an incredible honor to serve as the 9th President of Old Dominion University! My family and I are excited to officially become proud Monarchs and fully engage as tireless advocates of ODU and active members of the broader community.

I look forward to meeting our students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends in the weeks and months to come. Together, we will be forward-focused on our institution and our future!

With Monarch Pride,
