Q&A with new President Dr. Timothy Quinnan – Part Three

Dr. Timothy Quinnan

On Tuesday, June 20, Richmont Graduate University’s Board of Trustees announced the selection of its next President, Dr. Timothy Quinnan. Dr. Quinnan brings to Richmont an extensive background of serving students and universities including roles as Vice President of Student Affairs at University of Texas at Arlington, Associate Vice President for Campus Life at San Diego State University, Vice President for Student Services at Stark State College, and Associate Vice President for Student Affairs at Florida State University.

Question 4: What do you hope to accomplish during your tenure as the President of Richmont Graduate University?

Answer: My leadership agenda will arise from rich and robust consultations with all stakeholders in the Richmont community. It is essential for me to understand what they believe matters most. Together we will forge a shared vision that we can then work collectively to achieve. Clearly, there are a number of priorities that emerged during search process discussions. Among them will be: securing maximum term CACREP as well as SACS accreditation, leveraging the University’s strong institutional identity to create wider brand awareness among new constituent groups, expanding the enrollment and organizational infrastructure to support it, cultivating fresh revenue streams and other financial resources, and enhancing faculty, staff, and student diversity. These describe several important tasks and early milestones to be reached in our journey forward. Together with dedicated Trustees and the high-performance management team already in place, my commitment is to lead the University to fulfill a destiny so clearly portrayed in the mission statement.

Question 5: Is there anything else you want to tell the faculty, staff, students, alumni and friends of Richmont Graduate University?

Answer: I am honored and humbled to be the next President of Richmont Graduate University. Its transformational impact on the community and the lives of so many is clear and immeasurable. With God’s continued blessings, we will build on this legacy to further advance our mission of preparing students for lives of Christ-centered service.

“While we have the opportunity, let us do good to all men, but especially those in the household of faith.” (Galatians 6:10) 

Most importantly, I cannot wait to meet each and every single member of the Richmont Graduate University family.
