Office of the President

Virginia Intermont College is truly a special place.  Its history is significant and its present full of promise, and there is a wonderful spirit and sense of community which captivated me on my first visit to the campus in the early summer of 2010. I find it both inspiring and nurturing to be in this beautiful place among students, faculty, and staff who value togetherness, while respecting individuality, and who are dedicated to a mission that allows students to pursue their passions and find their voice. The sense of community at VI also extends well beyond the physical campus to the warm and welcoming environs of Bristol and Southwest Virginia.

Virginia Intermont College has embarked on an exciting future.  While honoring our past, we have launched dynamic change.  It is an honor for me to lead and serve VI as we enrich our academic offerings, improve dormitories and classroom buildings, expand our academic Honors Program, hire new faculty, bolster student academic success, create more opportunities for student internships and faculty research, and augment our athletic programs.  Virginia Intermont College’s future is happening now, and I invite prospective and current students, faculty and staff, alumni, and friends to participate in shaping our exciting future.
