SOUTHERN NAZARENE UNIVERSITY
ANNUAL FINANCIAL & ENROLLMENT REPORT 2010-11
For 112 years, Southern Nazarene University has been a place of creativity, vision and purpose. The faith of generous donors, professors and students has carried us through our extraordinary history. It is that same faith that fills me with hope for the future of this Christ-centered university. The following charts and statistics affirm SNUâ€™s remarkable progress. Despite challenging economic times, I think you will see clear evidence of the work of our dedicated faculty, staff and a gifted student body. I hope you will also recognize opportunities for further growth and development and pray with us as we strive to meet those challenges. While statistics provide a clear picture of the bottom line, they can easily miss what occurs outside the lines. Because of the exceptional quality of the â€œSNU Experienceâ€? we are attracting outstanding young men and women from all walks of life and from all over the world. With a student body totaling over 2,000 students, these individuals recognize the benefits of receiving an exceptional education within a Christ-centered community. Thank you for your encouragement and support as we prepare graduates who 'think with clarity, act with integrity and serve with purpose.' Thank you for being part of our mission of 'transforming lives through higher education in Christ-centered community.' His and yours,
Loren P. Gresham, PhD. 1
