SBU University Relations

Welcome from Brad Johnson Vice President of University Relations

Vice President of University Relations Brad Johnson

Students are at the heart of what we are about in University Relations.  While it may seem unusual that an office dedicated to keeping in touch with alumni, building financial resources and developing long-term friendships for the University would say its main focus is students, students are the reason we do what we do.  We see ourselves as facilitators of the University Mission which states that…

Southwest Baptist University is a Christ-centered, caring academic community preparing students to be servant-leaders in a global society.

The University Relations department recently developed our departmental mission statement building upon SBU’s core mission statement…

Guided by the University’s mission, the Division of University Relations exists to nurture lifelong relationships, build tradition and advance the University through volunteer engagement and philanthropic support.

Undergirding all of our work to support the University and its efforts to serve students is the fact that we want to honor Christ in all that we do.

If there is any way our office can serve you directly please do not hesitate to let us know.

Brad Johnson, Ed.D.
Vice President for University Relations
