Welcome From the President

Welcome to the University of Mount Olive!

Congratulations on your decision to take this next step in your educational journey. You are making an investment that will provide an opportunity to transform not only your life, but also the lives of all those you come in contact with.

Founded in 1951, the University of Mount Olive offers a comprehensive academic experience. Though we have grown to meet the needs of a diverse and growing student population of traditional, adult and online, and graduate students, we have not lost sight of our purpose. UMO’s mission to serve as a Christian faith-based, values-centered private institution rooted in the liberal arts tradition encompasses everything we do as we serve our students, our founding church, and our communities.

No matter what format you choose to continue your education, know that we are all dedicated to helping you reach your full potential. From your first class to the day you walk across the stage for graduation, we will be with you every step of the way.

I encourage you to start your transformation as you join us at the University of Mount Olive. It’s a great day to be a Trojan!


Dr. David Poole
