Suzanne Davis Elected as Greenville University President

The Greenville University Board of Trustees unanimously elected Dr. Suzanne Allison Davis ’00 as the University’s 13th president and first woman president.

According to the Board, Davis is the best person to serve as president because she has a vision for GU, she knows how to create and execute strategy, and she has demonstrated a passion to make GU better through her various roles with the University.

“As higher education has moved into such a highly tumultuous, precarious, and changing environment, I’ve seen Suzanne bring new ideas and solutions time after time,” says Kathleen J. Turpin ’91, Board of Trustees chair. “She has been uniquely gifted by God to not only see opportunities and possibilities many can’t see, but to use her connectivity and strategic ideas to bring them to fruition. Her love for Greenville and her willingness to be obedient to the Lord’s calling has brought her to today.  The Lord has called her for such a time as this and I believe, as the next president of Greenville University, she will lead the University well.”

Davis graduated from Greenville University (then College) in 2000 with a bachelor of arts in history and political science, and a bachelor of arts in philosophy and religion. She earned her MBA from University of Illinois College of Business and her juris doctorate at University of Illinois College of Law.
