President’s Roundtable

The President’s Roundtable held its inaugural meeting on October 8, 2009, and meets two times a year for a formal dinner or picnic and a presentation designed to help members become better acquainted with the College.

Past meetings, for example, have showcased the communications department, music and theatre departments, and the Center for Leadership Initiatives.




According to its by-laws, the purpose of the President’s Roundtable is to broaden the base of community interest and support for Bryan College through familiarizing and involving a wider and more diverse range of individuals in the work and purpose of the college. Putting “Christ Above All,” this body better utilizes the college’s resources and furthers its mission and goals through:

  • Consultation with administration and faculty regarding new developments and programs,
  • Identifying possible sources of support, and
  • The encouragement of mutually beneficial cooperative ventures between the college and area businesses and agencies.
