    From the President

    Andrew Westmoreland
    Dr. Andrew Westmoreland
    There are many great institutions of higher education, but there is only one Samford. Here a dedicated faculty and energetic students join to create a community of learning and faith like no other. The beauty of Samford’s campus is virtually matchless, but it pales in comparison to the quality of our people. From the classrooms and laboratories to the artistic stages and athletic venues, the minds and souls of Samford people make the real difference. Samford people bring the best, they are demanding and compassionate, they know the importance of engaging the world with a faith that calls them to serve. Each Monday, I share one of their incredible stories to illustrate how our people impact the world.

    Dr. Michael Hardin began a new chapter in his life last week as our Provost, completing his tenure as the Dean of the Culverhouse School of Business at the University of Alabama.

    Dr. Michael Hardin began a new chapter in his life last week as our Provost, completing his tenure as the Dean of the Culverhouse School of Business at the University of Alabama.  He arrives with the good will of the entire campus (and the relief of the 19-member search committee).  Mike’s wife is Anna Kathryn.  As I received the committee’s recommendation that we ask Dr. Hardin to accept the position, I talked with perhaps as many as 30 people who had known him in various capacities, both personal and professional.  If I had to offer one summary of the conversations, it would be this:  “He’s one of the finest people I have ever known.”  Welcome to Samford, Mike and Anna Kathryn, where you’ll write your own Samford stories.   

    The world is better because of Mike and Anna Kathryn Hardin.  (You may write a word of welcome to Dr. Hardin at mhardin@samford.edu.)
