The President's Office

Since our founding in 1867, McDaniel College has been changing lives by providing access and opportunity to deserving and hard-working students. I have witnessed the richness of this transformation; seeing a student fully grasp their own intellectual power while wrestling with a challenging topic in the classroom, or finding their voice advocating for a cause they care about. Our students can make these discoveries because of the support of our community, a community of people who care deeply about helping students find their place in the world.


Due to the McDaniel Commitment, McDaniel students graduate with the problem solving and communication skills that a liberal arts education provides, as well as the relevant professional skills and experiences needed to ensure career success. The result is that our students graduate prepared for the next stage on their journey. They become alumni who are empowered critical thinkers with passion for their work and compassion for others. As you learn more about McDaniel, I invite you to visit our campus in Westminster, MD. I know that the vibrancy and diversity of our campus will inspire you as it does me every day.
