Trevecca releases annual President’s Report

Trevecca president, Dr. Dan Boone, released the University’s annual report, “The Heart Still Beats,” this week. The 48-page report explores how Trevecca approached the challenges of the past year with a focus on creativity, community and commitment—all while remaining true to the core values that have anchored the University since its founding.

“At Trevecca, our mission statement and tagline have proven to be more than bold declarations,” the opening to the report reads. “The core values that have sustained Trevecca since J.O. McClurkan founded the University still anchor us.”

The report highlights the University’s creative responses to challenges, including partnering with the Tennessee Department of Education to provide professional development resources to educators and creating protocols to protect the health and safety of the campus community. In addition, the report features interviews with key Trevecca leaders such as University Chaplain Erik Gernand, University Provost Tom Middendorf and more. 

While detailing the 2019-2020 academic year and the University’s response to the global pandemic, the 2021 President’s Report also looks forward to the future. The final section of the report highlights the University’s commitment to the future and students through projects like the health sciences addition to Greathouse Science Building and a planned renovation of Jernigan Student Center.
