Message from the President

What I have come to realize over my tenure is that Chowan University represents more than just a place for higher education. From its earliest days, Chowan was founded with a mission to serve. For many, Chowan University represents family.

We offer a unique community of student peers, an expert faculty, and an administration that truly understands the importance of Spirit and faith. This Chowan Spirit guides students as they enter our University to experience a truly personalized education – only to emerge as adults ready to make their mark in a host of professions.

We have faith that God will continue to bless this institution raised up over 170 years ago. If you are a prospective student or current student, the university has faith in your future.

Chowan University continues its rise to new heights with a foundation firmly rooted in Christian ideology, and a campus community immersed with the Spirit to achieve. Our institution continues to exemplify excellence in undergraduate education.

On the pages of this website, you will discover the outstanding attributes of Chowan University. I hope you will take the time to check us out. I believe you will be impressed with what you find.

It is my sincere hope that you will become a part of Chowan University and I would like to invite you to visit our campus. It will be a pleasure to meet you. Contact us today to arrange a visit. You can schedule your visit by clicking here.

M. Christopher White
