Message from the President

Tuesday, August 20, 2013


Dear CDU Students, Alumni, Faculty, and Staff:
Our 29th commencement kicked off this month with CDU’s largest graduating class to date transitioning from students to alumni. It was a proud moment for me to witness the bright smiles of our newly minted CDU alumni and the cheers from their family and friends as they crossed the stage. We also celebrated receiving the largest individual gift in CDU history, of $1 million dollars, from Mr. Joe and Mrs. Emma Adams. This gift will provide scholarships for current and future CDU students. Mr. and Mrs. Adams are outstanding examples of giving back to your community.
We continue to reinforce and encourage the spirit of giving with the Operation: Giving campaign, presented by Laurell Black from the College of Science and Health, to assist those that were affected by the Oklahoma tornadoes in late May.
In July, CDU will enthusiastically welcome our new Interim Provost, Mary E. Boyce, PhD. Dr. Boyce brings significant experience in organizational development and in her own words, “comes to CDU with tremendous excitement and desire to be part of the CDU mission to educate healthcare providers for under-served communities.”
Welcome to CDU Dr. Boyce!
I look forward to an outstanding summer, and wish you all a wonderful summer!

Dr. David M. Carlisle
