Board of Trustees

The Board Of Trustees of The University of the Southwest is privileged to provide guidance and service to our fine institution. We are proud to assist the University in meeting its goals and mission as a Christ-center University. 

Our mission is to develop students for a lifetime of servant leadership, responsibility, faith, and personal initiative by providing an excellent Christ-centered education. 

I invite you to visit our campus and meet our students and staff. The enthusiasm and attitude of everyone creates an atmosphere that cannot be matched. 

If you have any questions, please contact me or any Board member. Welcome to USW!
