A Message from President Olivarez

I am thrilled to lead Aquinas College into the next phase. I graduated from here, I met my wife here and we've stayed connected over the years, so I have a strong affinity for Aquinas. As I've said before, Aquinas changed my life. As a proud graduate of Aquinas I understand and enthusiastically uphold and support the Catholic and Dominican mission of the institution. I consider AQ to have given me the solid foundation for a gratifying career with the values and vision of working in community and for the betterment of the common good. - Juan Olivarez, Ph.D., President
