Dr. Leo M. Lambert

President, Elon University

Greetings from Elon! Every generation of alumni has experienced the transformational power of an Elon education since our founding in 1889. Today, we are a leading residential liberal arts university, offering our students a breadth of academic opportunity in an intimate community renowned for active and engaged learning.

In order to truly appreciate Elon's uniqueness on the landscape of American higher education, you must pay a visit to the campus, which has recently been designated a botanical garden. Here, you will discover a true academic community. Our faculty members are wonderful teacher-scholars who engage students in the joy of discovery, helping them develop the habits of mind that will prepare them for leadership in a global age. Our staff members are committed to creating a campus environment that allows learning to occur seamlessly in and out of the classroom. And most important, you will meet our students – talented, friendly, community-minded, inquisitive, active learners. You will be impressed by the spirit of Elon people!

We look forward to seeing you.
