He or she will also be a visionary academic leader who embraces fully the Christ-centered ethos and identity of Samford University, creates and sustains - in collaboration with other leaders - a strategic academic vision, commands respect as a thought leader in the academic community, and displays a clear record of administrative leadership and academic success.
