Why Corban: “The opportunity to build a new academic program from the ground up does not come around often. I love turning a vision into reality and the opportunity to launch the assortment of Leadership & Political Engagement programs, including the political science degree and debate club, at an institution like Corban University, that is in the business of producing students as a ‘Corban’ (gift to God), was difficult to pass up.”
