FROM THE PRESIDENT

As we begin the 128th year at Lenoir-Rhyne University and the 188th year at the Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary, we have much to be proud of. Overall enrollment has grown to approximately 2,700, the 10th consecutive year of record enrollment and our freshman class of more than 500 is the largest class in LR history. 

Our student-athletes proved, once again, that they are truly scholar-athletes. In addition to their many successes in competition, a league-high 198 student-athletes earned spots on the SAC Commissioner’s Honor Roll, which led the conference, and the combined grade point average for all of our student-athletes in the spring semester was an unprecedented 3.29. In addition, 18 of Lenoir-Rhyne's 22 teams posted a team GPA of 3.0 or higher. 

Our first graduating class from the Physician Assistant Program has a 100 percent pass rate on the national certifying exam, a significant accomplishment. We have launched our first doctoral program, the Doctor of Nursing Practice, and we are poised to launch two exciting new building projects—the University Commons and the Neill McGeachy Sports Performance Center—that will significantly enhance our facilities. 

You can read more about many of these accomplishments in the pages of this issue of Profile. In addition, you’ll see profiles of a few of our outstanding faculty members, learn about our new provost, and find stories about how our students are blazing trails in their communities.

Stories like these are the real successes at LR, and I am fortunate to see successes like these firsthand every day through my work with our students, alumni, faculty and staff. Their commitment to making LR the best it can be is inspiring, and I look forward to what this year holds.

Sincerely,

Dr. Fred Whitt
President
