In one word, how would you describe the way you feel about the GTU?


What excites you about being a member of the GTU’s Board of Trustees?

The GTU is a creative national and international graduate school that gathers students and faculty of a number of different faiths, who learn not only from their own traditions but also from other religious traditions, as well as from a number of academic disciplines. This is excellent education for today and also for tomorrow

What do you find inspiring about GTU 2.0 and the future of the GTU?

GTU 2.0 is the challenging and creative vehicle for the GTU to continue to move forward to provide education that meets the future with perception and creativity.
