Welcome from the Dean

Dr. Amy Austin

In today’s fast paced society, our everyday interactions with people can sometimes become impersonal and apathetic. As an adult who is trying to balance work and a family, this is not what you are looking for in a college when considering going back to school to get your education. At Shorter University, you will find a warm and inviting community among our faculty and staff.

Our faculty and staff are dedicated to ensuring that students are provided with the necessary tools to be successful in and out of the classroom. The curriculum, instruction, and administration are all designed to interrelate theoretical and research knowledge with practical application while integrating faith through learning.

In Proverbs 3:5-6 it says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your way acknowledge him, and He will make your paths straight.” Shorter is distinguished from other institutions for this one reason: we practice what we preach. We provide a supportive, family, and Christ-centered environment to help each student tackle everything life might throw at you.

If you are considering making a career and life-changing decision, I encourage you to stop by one of our four locations to see firsthand what Shorter University has to offer to you. We are here for you, from start to finish.


Warm regards,

Signature of Amy Austin
