Speed of TrustThe Speed of Trust: The One Thing That Changes Everything by Stephen M.R. Covey

Admiral Vernon Clark (Ret.), Vanguard University Trustee, recommended this book to the cabinet. As the Chief of the Navy, Admiral Clark proved to be a skilled and effective leader by building trust with officers and living a life full of integrity. As Vanguard University emerged from crisis, the leadership committed to rebuilding a culture of trust and transparency to ignite Vanguard’s legacy.

Welcome to the New Cabinet Blog!

Welcome to Forefront, the new blog of the Vanguard University Administration. The goal of this blog is to generate dialogue regarding the university’s mission and how it is lived out in community. The name, Forefront, was inspired by the word Vanguard, which is defined as the forefront in any movement, field, activity, or the like. Empowered by the Holy Spirit, Vanguard University seeks to be on the forefront of Christ-centered education.

As administrators, we are privileged to be stewards of Vanguard’s mission to pursue knowledge, cultivate character, deepen faith, and equip each student for a life of leadership and service. The pursuit of our mission is a collective effort that is only possible when the gifts of the entire community are brought together in a common vision. This blog is one effort to generate conversation regarding how our work is only possible because of the gifts and talents that God grants to members of the whole Vanguard family.

As the University celebrates its 90th year, there are great memories and events to celebrate. However, this is a critical time to position Vanguard for the future. How will Vanguard move forward towards its 100th year? The governance of the University is a sacred trust, one that is shared in prayer and collaboration. We look forward to moving forward together.
