Deborah L. Evans
Dear Moravian Community,
It has truly been an honor to close out this week as Moravian College's new president. To return home, to return to serve your alma mater is truly humbling. I thank all of you for welcoming me home with such warmth and care.
During my many meetings this week, I have witnessed the dedication and passion that each of you share for Moravian and its students. We truly transform lives—each and everyday. I am so very proud of the work that you do.
Over the next few days, months, and years, we will continue to focus our energies on the type of active learning that has made Moravian great. Whether it is understanding and using technology, becoming more informed global citizens and community leaders, or becoming better critical thinkers and life-long learners, our students are looking to us to help them navigate the world they face. I think it is critically important that we provide our students with an outstanding liberal arts education combined with the skills and knowledge they will need to be successful in their chosen careers.
Bryon L. Grigsby ’90 began his tenure as 16th president of Moravian College and Moravian Theological Seminary on July 1, 2013.
A 1990 graduate of Moravian, Grigsby is eager to return and begin building upon the College’s strong tradition of academic excellence. "There is no greater honor than to serve your alma mater,” he said. “As the sixth-oldest college in the nation, Moravian has a rich history, distinguished alumni, engaged faculty, committed student support staff, and a vibrant and active student body.”
Grigsby has served as senior vice president and vice president for academic affairs at Shenandoah University in Winchester, Virginia, since 2008. As the chief academic officer at the institution, he was responsible for the administration of academic programs and was their main advocate to the president and the Board of Trustees. He was also responsible for the implementation of the campus-wide strategic plan.
