Complete information is available in the Search Profile at http://www.myersmcrae.com/skins/userfiles/files/MU-Provost.pdf

The Opportunity

For the past 63 years, Methodist University has provided men and women academic programs and experiences based on the conviction that a liberally educated person is sensitive to the needs and rights of others. With this goal, the institution has sought to develop graduates who will contribute substantially and creatively to the professions and to civic life.

While the University is committed to its relationship with The United Methodist Church, its primary function is to provide a liberal arts education in the context of a growing group of professional, pre-professional, and health sciences programs. The University is committed to providing a campus atmosphere that is welcoming, inclusive, and safe for all students.

Methodist University has graduated more than 12,700 students. While the University has alumni in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and abroad, more than 5,700 of MU's graduates reside in North Carolina.

Methodist University

Methodist University was chartered in 1956 as Methodist College. The school was founded by the people of Cumberland County and the North Carolina Conference of The United Methodist Church for the purpose of Christian higher education and the extension of the influence of science, art, and Christian culture.

In October 2006, on the eve of the 50th anniversary of the founding of Methodist College, the Board of Trustees voted to rename the institution Methodist University to reflect MU's ongoing expansion into graduate education.

While related by faith to the North Carolina Annual Conference, Southeastern Jurisdiction of The United Methodist Church, the University is an independent corporation rather than an agency of the Conference.

Today, MU offers bachelor's degrees in over 80 fields of study through five academic schools: Arts and Humanities, Reeves School of Business, Public Affairs, Health Sciences, and Science and Human Development. Six graduate degree programs are available, including a Master of Science in Physician Assistant and doctoral programs in Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy.

Within the student body, 1,700 students attend the traditional day program, 300 are in MU at Night, and 300 are in graduate programs. The student-to-faculty ratio is 12:1, with an average class size of around 15 students. Almost $24 million in institutional scholarships and grants were awarded to MU students last year.

MU has an online learning program that allows qualified students to supplement their traditional classrooms courses with Internet-based courses. However, students cannot currently earn their entire degree online. One of President Wearden's top priorities is to expand online learning to include certificate and degree programs.

The faculty members are committed to excellent teaching, professional development, and research. Numerous faculty members have published peer-reviewed articles, presented findings at regional and national conferences, published works of poetry, or served as editorial review panelists for major publications. Student surveys routinely cite the unique quality of classroom, library, and online experiences as reasons for recommending MU to friends and family members.

In the Methodist tradition of service to others, students participate in volunteerism and service-learning opportunities throughout the year. MU's Center for Community Engagement partners with 27 local organizations to serve the local community.

The 617-acre campus includes 50 buildings, an 18-hole golf course, football/track facility, baseball and softball fields, tennis courts, outdoor volleyball and basketball courts, and an amphitheater. The facilities offer state-of-the-art technology for both teaching and learning.

The University is an NCAA Division III member, competing in the USA South Athletic Conference, and offers 20 intercollegiate sports. MU has an outstanding athletic record with 37 National Titles - winning its 12th men's golf championship in 2018 - and 142 Conference Championships. Its commitment to the academic studies of its student-athletes is evident with its record of 48 All-Americans.
