"We found that many students and practitioners had most of the knowledge-base to serve, but they were uncertain how to implement this knowledge," explained Dr. Bernie Spooner, associate dean of the Gary Cook Graduate School of Leadership. Because of many requests coming from students for this type of program, DBU decided to move forward with the Gary Cook Graduate School of Leadership and established the degree programs in response to this need.
"This is an exciting time to be a student at DBU," said Dr. Cook, president of Dallas Baptist University. "I am happy to have so many talented faculty as a part of the University, and we believe the Lord has already chosen each student who will be part of the School of Leadership."
The mission of the Gary Cook Graduate School of Leadership is to integrate a Biblical foundation of Christian faith and values with professional studies, developing lifelong scholars, in order to support the University mission of producing effective servant leaders who serve throughout the world with distinction in their chosen vocation.
