The President

Kate Mondal

Dr. Joseph M. Stowell is Cornerstone University’s 11th president. He began his presidential duties on Feb. 1, 2008.  He is a nationally known speaker and author of more than 20 books, and he also serves on the board and executive committee of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. He was president at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago for 18 years. He received a Doctor of Divinity degree from The Master's College.

“This is where my heart is,” Stowell said of Cornerstone. “I’m most excited about being around students in this generation. I want to continue the tradition of this university being a community where students are encouraged and nurtured by the environment and culture. I want students to thrive here. It excites me that God’s hand is in it.”
