Dear Harriet B. Nembhard,

On behalf of Azusa Pacific University, congratulations on your appointment as President of Harvey Mudd College! Please accept my sincere apologies for being unable to attend your inauguration ceremony. Thank you for the kind and thoughtful invitation.

As a new President myself, I resonate with the excitement and challenges that come with stepping into this calling. The ever-changing landscape of higher education requires nimble, diligent, and faithful leaders who steward their university’s mission with care, and while this work can be challenging, it is absolutely worthwhile.

I am praying for you, and for the Harvey Mudd College community, to be a blessing and to be blessed as you step into chis new assignment ofleading your institution.

In Christ,

Adam J. Morris, PhD
