President’s Greeting

Thomas White, President of Cedarville UniversityIt is a privilege and honor to serve and lead at Cedarville University! For nearly 130 years, this institution has been dedicated to providing a comprehensive education marked by excellence and grounded in biblical truth. That dedication has been rooted in a desire to glorify God, a desire permeated throughout the trustees, administration, faculty, staff, students, and friends of Cedarville.

As we look to the future, Cedarville will continue to be an exemplary Christian institution known for its commitment to academic excellence, submission to biblical authority, passion for the Great Commission, and intentional discipleship that transforms lives for godly service, vocational distinction, and cultural engagement.

As I share with families about Cedarville’s approach to higher education, I refer to the importance of “1,000 Days.” From the day students arrive at Cedarville until they walk across the stage at graduation — not counting summer and winter breaks — students will be on our campus for approximately 1,000 days. In every one of those days, we are intentional about life transformation.

We are grounding our students in the Word through a solid Bible minor emphasizing biblical theology. We are discipling and mentoring the next generation of believers for eternal impact in their communities, cultures, local churches, and marketplaces. We will remain faithful to the stewardship entrusted to us, glorifying God by fulfilling His teaching and by producing well-educated graduates who are equipped to take the Gospel to the ends of the earth.

That’s what we do at Cedarville. That is our mission. We embrace that mission; we are unashamed of that mission. We will stand for the Word of God and the Testimony of Jesus Christ.
