President

Welcome from the President

"As I begin my responsibilities as the president of Harding for the second time, let me first express thanks to our Board of Trustees. I am very humbled by their faith in me to once again serve as president for an interim period of time while they search for the next president. I trust that God will work now as he did before as I assume this role on this occasion. I do ask for your support and the support of the entire Harding University family. I ask for your patience and I ask for your prayers. I know that God has big plans for all of us." —President David B. Burks
