• President Home - Old Main

    Welcome to Hamline University!

    Thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in Hamline University. 

    It is my first year at Hamline, and I want to share with you that I am humbled and honored to be a part of the extraordinary Hamline University community. Our professors and staff are passionate about ensuring all of our students receive a high quality educational experience, and our students are engaged, creative, and inspiring. I truly believe we offer opportunities that students might not have imagined possible prior to taking the journey that is the Hamline experience.

    This vital work requires the talent and dedication of the entire university. It is the people—the students, staff, faculty, senior leaders, board members, religious partners, and community members—who embody the essence of Hamline. On my very first day on campus, I walked through the Anderson Center and was greeted with raised hands of welcome and warm smiles, from the young woman cleaning the glass doors and those having a coffee at Starbucks, to those holding meetings in their offices. It is moments such as those that confirm why I chose to be a part of the Hamline University community. 

    There is vibrancy in the air and, with that, comes a sense of commitment, desire, and willingness to work together to ensure that Hamline continues to excel and be a global institution with local roots. 

    I hope you are considering Hamline University for your educational journey. I invite you to peruse the website, learn about our degree programs and experiential learning opportunities, and then come to visit us and tour our beautiful campus, meet our dedicated faculty and staff, and sit in on a class to interact with our students. 

    I know that, together, we can accomplish any and all things. I am excited about what Hamline is doing as a community and know that much more is yet to come. I look forward to meeting you--whether it be at a Hamline athletic event, a symposia or concert on campus, at an alumni event, or whether you reach out to me directly.

    With best regards, 

    Dr. Fayneese Miller
    President of Hamline University
