Office of the President

Dr. Tiffany McKillip Franks, 14th President of Averett University

Thank you for visiting and using Averett University’s website. You can learn a lot about us here — you’ll see that we are the only university in the U.S. to offer both aeronautics and equestrian programs; you’ll learn about the Arts@Averett (often presented in our beautiful performing arts center), our groundbreaking esports program and the Frank R. Campbell Stadium; you’ll also read about our nursing programs, our online programs and our graduate studies.

You can use this website to learn about all of our majors in the liberal-arts tradition and about our full range of athletics (Go, Cougars!). You can even read about the student-centered administrators who comprise the President’s Council.

You’ll see that our students range from traditional undergraduates to experienced adults seeking continuing education. Their lives, and the lives they touch, are forever changed as a result of their experiences here.

However, you will not be able to feel what makes us truly wonderful, nurturing, friendly. You can’t use the Web to feel how inspiring Averett consistently is.

Visit. That’s the key.

If you are considering making Averett your university of choice, I urge you to visit our campuses and talk with our faculty and staff, who work constantly to help students discover their own greatness.

Once you are here, I am certain you will immediately sense the feeling of family that pervades all of Averett, and you’ll get a truer sense of the power of an Averett education.

And to those of you who are graduates and friends of Averett, I invite you to plan a return visit, to reconnect and join with us in taking pride in this remarkable university.

Please know that, as always, my door is open to you. I look forward to meeting and talking with you.

Best Wishes,
Tiffany M. Franks
