It is so exciting to see and feel firsthand God’s powerful impact on students here at APU through such caring and gifted faculty and staff leadership! Beyond pursuing academic excellence, APU students want to grow and transform spiritually in order to better serve and lead others in family, church, community, career, and beyond. What an amazing incubator here on the APU campus. I am grateful to serve APU families, following a longtime legal career in the Chicago area, where my church engagement and volunteering began midlife. I am blessed to hear APU student and family stories and to advocate for the 90 percent of our families who receive scholarship assistance.

Michael holds MBA and JD degrees. His wife, Michele, practices and teaches dentistry. Each of their 5 children has chosen to experience APU.
