It didn?t surprise me to hear that Alexis Kiehl is one of 10 finalists for the prestigious 2017 Senior CLASS Award in women?s collegiate soccer.

How High Will We Fly?

Our Calling

April 07, 2017

The Dayton Daily News today features my guest column, ?Lead in Service to the Common Good,? on its editorial page.


For the Common Good

April 04, 2017

What is the path for us to become known as The University for the Common Good? I hope I did justice to the work and hopes of so many in my inaugural address today in a joyful ceremony at UD Arena.
