Message to the Guild from the President of HBU

HBU President, Dr. Robert B. Sloan, Jr.

Dear Friends,

This is such a wonderful time to be at HBU, and Sue and I are thrilled to be starting our ninth year of service! Once again we want to express our heartfelt appreciation for you and your commitment to the mission of the University. We treasure your friendship, and we are truly grateful for your ongoing dedication, hard work, and generosity. Because of your faithful support, The Guild scholarship program and The Guild Institute in Christian Family Studies continue to bless the lives of numerous individuals, both on the campus and in our community.

As many of you know, momentum is building across many areas of the campus as we implement the goals in the Ten Pillars vision. Significant increases in both graduate and undergraduate enrollments, enhancements to our student life programming, the construction of new campus facilities and the repurposing of existing ones, and the growth of our outstanding faculty
of acclaimed Christian scholars are only some of the recent developments that reflect progress in realizing these goals.

Thank you again for investing your financial resources, your time, your talents, and your prayers in the mission of the University. Because of your Christian commitment and service, we are transforming the lives of students as we prepare them to become salt and light in the world.
