William Jewell College is led by the president and vice presidents of the College, commonly referred to as the President’s Cabinet. The year after each bio denotes the Cabinet member’s year of hire at Jewell.
Under direction of the president, the Cabinet leads and manages the day-to-day operations of Jewell and attends to its future. Cabinet members work closely with the Board of Trustees to establish strategic initiatives and goals consistent with the college’s mission and fulfillment of its Strategic Plan (2007-2017), which calls for the College to act intentionally to fulfill our promise to transform students, to live out our motto, Deo fisus labora, and to achieve our mission.
