Message from the President:

How does a former Houston Police Department Homicide Detective end up as the President of Southern Nazarene University?

Come join us at SNU and I will buy you coffee and share the crazy journey that led me from pursuing criminals to hanging out with university students. The story has some crazy twists and turns but features the constant presence of God directing my path.

At SNU we believe that God has a plan for every individual's life and we would love to join you on your journey. Your story becomes a part of the SNU story and we've seen over 35,000 people join our community as they prepared to serve in assignments across our city and around the world.

If you are looking for a place to discover your passion and purpose, we invite you to check us out and see if we might be a great fit for you. Thanks for taking a look and let us know if there are ways we can serve you as you seek the next step for your higher education experience.

- Dr. Keith Newman
