Averett is a place of learning where you will find a diversity of academic programs all grounded in the strength of a liberal arts curriculum. You will have the opportunity to explore many subjects and courses. You may even decide to spend a semester abroad or to explore the world on one of our exciting study trips.

This catalog serves as your roadmap to these and many other opportunities. But this is only a guide; the rest is up to you. I encourage you to seek the advice of our talented faculty and staff who are dedicated to nurturing your success. We are here to support you, to challenge you, and to encourage you as you discover the power of an Averett education. It is our privilege to listen to your dreams and to help you find your path.

Please know that my door is open to you. You will see me and my husband, Joe, around campus and at University events. I look forward to getting to know you and to applauding your success.

  Best Wishes,

Tiffany M. Franks President
