During my tenure at Samford, I’ve been blessed to work with two outstanding leaders of the Faculty Senate, Don Sandley and Robin Snyder.  Along with their colleagues, they seek to discover the ways in which we can work together—faculty, staff, students, trustees, alumni, and other friends—to create the best learning environment for our students.  Vigilant in protecting academic freedom and in safeguarding the interests of employees, the members of our Faculty Senate care about the entirety of Samford and about the fulfillment of our mission.  In the world of the academy, where disruptive tensions sometimes create misery between faculty and administration, it is a joy to work at a place where common bonds hold us together. 


 The world is better because of the leadership of the Samford faculty.
