Leadership Kentucky recently announced the members of the Leadership Kentucky Class of 2021, which includes Transylvania’s president, Brien Lewis.
On this day, 241 years ago, the Virginia State Legislature chartered the first institution of higher learning west of the Allegheny Mountains — what is today known as Transylvania University.
Transylvania is committed to creating and maintaining an equitable and inclusive campus community that is free from harassment and discrimination for everyone.
At Transylvania, we prepare our students to be agents of creativity, to be curious and resilient, and to pass on the light to those who come behind them.
Transylvania University’s Brien Lewis recently joined Bill Goodman, host of the Think Humanities podcast, to discuss Lewis’ plans for Kentucky’s first university.
