TRANSFORMATION Dr. Bonnie Humphrey was chosen as the 13th president of MVC in January of 2005. During her first decade of leadership, the atmosphere and culture of the institution changed remarkably. The physical appearance of the campus has changed as a result of her vision to implement a campus beautification program, construct several new buildings and renovate several other structures.​Her ​leadership initiatives have helped increase student enrollment and add new athletic programs. Expanded opportunities for student/faculty interaction as well as newly added academic programs have created a student-centered learning environment that focuses on student success.

"I love Missouri Valley College, and can't wait to see what the future holds for our Institution!" —Dr. Bonnie Humphrey
