University releases President’s Report celebrating 2017-2018 academic year

Trevecca Nazarene University and Dr. Dan Boone, University president, released their annual President’s Report this week. Titled “To Be More,” the report celebrates and expands upon Trevecca’s motto, Esse Quam Videri.

Esse Quam Videri, to be rather than to seem, is our brand,” Boone said. “But it’s not just something we say. The proof is our graduates and our students. They are innovators, influencers and leaders who make a difference in the world around them. This report is a celebration of that.”

Detailing the highlights of the 2017-2018 academic year, the report showcases the stories of alumni, donors and current students, featured alongside University achievements, statistics and financial information. The report celebrates a momentous year for Trevecca. For the fifth consecutive year, the University grew in total enrollment, reclaiming the title of fastest growing university in Middle Tennessee.

2018 also marked the opening of the Flats at Walden Grove, a 126-unit University-owned apartment development adjacent to campus. The Flats are currently 100 percent occupied. In addition, Trevecca received the largest gift in University history in Nov. 2018. Anonymous donors funded a private family foundation with the expectation that an estimated $1 million will be distributed to the University each year in perpetuity.

This year’s President’s Report also looks forward to the future, detailing new programs such as the electrical and computer engineering program as well as the University’s newest doctoral degree, the Doctor of Business Administration.

The 32-page report is already available on campus and arriving in mailboxes this week. A digital version is available here.
