SBU celebrates 143rd school year at formal convocation
Two faculty members and a staff member were honored during Southwest Baptist University's annual convocation Wednesday, Aug. 19 - the opening of the 143rd session of the University. This year's event was held in front of a small gathering of students due to occupancy limits because of the COVID-19 global pandemic.
Southwest Baptist University is pleased to announce several new faculty members for the 2020-2021 academic year. SBU's faculty is integral in the University's mission to be a Christ-centered, caring academic community preparing students to be servant leaders in a global society.
Southwest Baptist University's Board of Trustees approved a resolution affirming and acknowledging SBU's relationship and common goals with the Missouri Baptist Convention during its July 29 board meeting.
As the world began to shut down because of the COVID-19 pandemic, SBU's Center for Global Connections had to keep its mission project teams home as the campus transitioned to remote learning for the remainder of the semester.
