Office of the President

From the Desk of the President

Thank you for your interest in Cedarville University, an institution that has stood firmly for the Word of God and the Testimony of Jesus Christ for more than 130 years.

If you want to understand the heartbeat of Cedarville's undergraduate education, I invite you to watch this short "1,000 Days" video. From the time freshmen arrive on our campus until the day they walk across the commencement stage — not counting summer and winter breaks — they’ll be here for approximately 1,000 days. We are intentional in every one of those days about equipping students to enter the workplace professionally equipped and personally motivated to influence their world for Jesus Christ.

I also encourage you to explore our online and residential graduate programs, each focused on equipping Christian professionals for career success and Gospel impact. Our College Now program makes Cedarville's undergraduate courses, all taught from a biblical worldview, available to high school students.

To stay current on the latest Cedarville news, subscribe to the monthly Inside View. From student missions trips to excellence in academics to guest speakers in our daily chapel, you'll be encouraged by what God is doing in and through Cedarville University faculty, staff, and students.

Cedarville University is supported by generous friends who invest in student scholarships, academic programs, and capital projects. I invite you to partner with us and be a part of transforming lives for godly service, vocational distinction, and cultural engagement.

In Christ alone,

Thomas White Signature
