Students, staff and university officials were on hand for the presentation showcasing the new 25 year strategy which includes new student housing, changes to streets on campus and renovations to existing buildings.

Speaking inside Stone Chapel amongst university officials dressed in full regalia, Cloyd described Drury’s quest to continue its traditional teaching methods while adapting to social change and demand.
