A Message from the President

Dr. HarperThe McMurry University commitment to academic excellence and student engagement is flourishing as we examine topics of global significance, solve problems with faculty and student expertise, and serve the local and international communities through our demanding educational experiences.

In response to the challenges that private higher education faces, we are developing a comprehensive plan to ensure that as we reach our centennial in 2023 we continue to serve our students through our second century of existence. We are carefully reviewing our internal and external environments and assessing our strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. The excitement of this work lies in its variety, its positive consequences, and its collaborative nature across the entire McMurry campus.

McMurry’s endowment remains strong and, through your generosity, alumni participation continues to grow. Your sustained support helps students by supplying them with experiences and tools they need to lead lives of meaning and service. It’s the difference between an education that just gets students a job and an education that makes them a factor for the greater good.

Thank you for your enduring support!

Sandra S. Harper, Ph.D.
President of the University
