Office of the President

Dr. and Mrs Henry SpauldingOn Nov. 2, 2012, the Mount Vernon Nazarene University Board of Trustees elected Dr. Henry W. Spaulding II as the seventh president of MVNU. Dr. Spaulding had been serving as MVNU Provost and Chief Academic Officer at the time of his appointment.

Dr. Spaulding was inaugurated on Friday, Nov. 8, 2013.

Dr. Spaulding has held a variety of roles and positions during his more than 30 years in higher education, including Professor of Religion at Eastern Nazarene College in Quincy, Mass.; Dean of the School of Arts and Sciences at Trevecca Nazarene University in Nashville, Tenn.; and Director of the Master of Divinity Program at Nazarene Theological Seminary in Kansas City, Mo.

After completing his undergraduate work at Trevecca, Dr. Spaulding received his Master of Divinity (M.Div.) degree from Nazarene Theological Seminary in 1977, and completed his Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree at The Florida State University in 1982.

During Dr. Spaulding's time as MVNU Provost, he helped guide the University through a comprehensive General Education revision. He also directed MVNU through the Ohio Board of Regents’ 10-year reauthorization process, and spearheaded the effort which led to the achievement of a Level II designation from the Higher Learning Commission for MVNU's online academic programs.

Dr. Spaulding is the author of several books including We Believe: Engaging the Doctrinal Heritage of the Church of the Nazarene (2011); We Live: Engaging the Moral Convictions of the Church of the Nazarene (2016); and a number of articles and academic papers on a wide range of topics.

Dr. Spaulding's wife, Sharon, also a graduate of Trevecca, is a teacher. They have three grown children.
