Dr. Andrew Westmoreland
There are many great institutions of higher education, but there is only one Samford University. 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.

Monday Mission, November 20, 2017

I overheard snippets of several conversations last Saturday between members of our faculty and prospective students and their families as they gathered for a Preview Day activity in the Pete Hanna Center.

Sentence by sentence, faculty members were becoming acquainted with many students who, one year from now, will be nearing the end of their first semester at Samford.  I was thankful as I witnessed these exchanges.  A friend told me many years ago that a university can't be better than the faculty.  Samford is a strong institution, in large measure, due to the quality of our faculty.

The world is better because of the strength and dedication of the Samford faculty.
