Hiram College

Office of the President


Some of the best parts of being the Hiram College President are the opportunities I have to engage with alumni, faculty, staff, and, of course, new and continuing students. I am often out and about on campus and in the many communities where Hiram College lives. If you see me around, please stop for a moment so we can exchange the warm “Hiram Hi” that still marks our home on the hill.
