Jody Horner Enters Role as Midland University’s 16th President


Jody Horner, the 16th president of Midland University, arrived on campus Monday, greeting faculty, staff, and students. President Horner used the day interacting with students and familiarizing herself with the residential campus community.

“It’s a thrill to be here in such a friendly and energetic environment,” said Midland President Jody Horner. “I’ve already had the opportunity to meet outstanding students, and I’m eager to build on the high momentum that has been growing here.”

Horner spent much of Monday meeting with students, faculty, and staff throughout the university campus and plans to attend on-campus student life events later this evening. She is anticipated to spend the majority of her first week listening, learning, and getting to know members of both the Midland and Fremont communities.

At Midland, she will lead an institution that has climbed substantially in both growth and trajectory in recent years.  As one of the region’s fastest growing schools, Midland’s enrollment has more than doubled since 2009. Along with recording the largest enrollment in the school’s 131-year history, Midland has added 11 varsity sports since 2009, is now home to more than 600 student athletes in 27 varsity athletic programs, and offers more than 250 opportunities in the performing arts.

In addition to investing heavily in building a personalized residential experience, Midland has spent recent years creating a strong support network for student success.  Since the launch of the university’s innovative Four-Year Graduation Guarantee, Midland has build an intensive, student-centered advising structure.

Housed in the recently formed Center for the Four-Year Graduation Guarantee, Midland’s team of professional advisors provide one-on-one professional advising ,track progress, and coordinate support for each student.

“I’m looking forward to taking in the stories, ambitions, and ideas of all of the members of our community,” said President Horner. “I’m eager to get to know the people of Midland and the greater Fremont community.”

Jody Horner was unanimously elected as president by the Midland University Board of Directors on December 17th, 2014. She is the 16th president in the institution’s 131-year history.
