Shorter College

Board of Trustees

Since it was founded in 1886, Shorter College has been instrumental in providing strong academic training, as well as character development for countless young men and women throughout the United States. Shorter College’s unapologetic Christian values have been the essential traits that make Shorter a unique and valued institution for many years.

I, and the members of the Board of Trustees are excited about the direction and future of Shorter. It is our intent to make sure that each student attending Shorter is provided the best environment available to succeed in their quest for academic development. Your success is our success, and we are interested in being a part of your success today.
