A Message from our Gala Chairs
The Spirit of Excellence Gala is an opportunity for you to invest in HBU’s growing international mission. Adapting to the needs of 21st century students, HBU is capitalizing on the digital revolution to further develop its online academic initiatives, while keeping its distinctive Christian identity. HBU’s entrepreneurial spirit is taking its highly regarded psychology and mental health programs and expanding their global accessibility through the University’s online platform. As a result, HBU will further its mission and directly impact the breadth and quality of services treating mental illness around the world.
Another significant priority is the further development of a new enterprise. HBU’s Center for Law & Liberty is dedicated to the preservation and promotion of the founding Constitutional principles of the United States. The Center offers unique opportunities and scholarships for HBU students, public outreach, educational events, and also plans to evolve into an active public policy think tank. With your support, the Center will serve to impact our society and develop future leaders from its Constitutional and Christian moorings.
Through your support of the Spirit of Excellence Gala, HBU will continue to be positioned to meet the growing demands for A Higher Education in the 21st century.
