The MU Journey
Every Monarch Has a Journey...
I believe we all have a journey; the Methodist University Journey is about embracing experiences outside of the classroom that prepare students for a productive career, and a life of meaning and purpose. These are things that I am passionate about, and I always say, choose your passion first, and success will follow.
Methodist is quickly developing a reputation as one of the rising universities in the country. At my Inauguration, I noted several initiatives that underscored this development, including several new centers in the areas of student success, leadership, globalization, undergraduate research and creativity, and community engagement, which will distinguish a Methodist University education from any other.
We need to deliver on the educational promise we make to each student as he or she enters the campus, and I think we are well poised to deliver on that promise through delivering a unique and personal educational experience. I firmly believe that the best is yet to be!

The Four Pathways of the Methodist University Journey
The Methodist University Journey focuses on increasing opportunities for students to be engaged inside and outside of the classroom, fulfilling the institution's motto to engage, enrich, and empower its students and community.
|The Lura S. Tally Center for Leadership Development will prepare students for effective leadership by empowering them with the knowledge, values, skills, and experiences necessary to achieve positive change in the community and workplace. Every student will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of leadership development activities to build a critical set of effective leadership skills.|
|The Center for Community Engagement will provide opportunities for students to participate in measurable, time-limited, problem-solving and community-based experiences. This pathway of the MU Journey provides opportunities for students to improve their local community in ways that extend beyond basic volunteerism.|
|The Center for Global Education will enrich the lives of Methodist University students by providing increased opportunities for every undergraduate to study abroad, with a goal of doubling the number of international students at Methodist University to 200.|
|The Center for Undergraduate Research and Creativity will provide students with opportunities to conduct original research and creative projects that will increase their competitiveness and readiness for graduate school and/or their chosen careers.|
