Message from the Provost

Dr. Aimé Sposato, ProvostIt is my distinct pleasure to welcome you to a campus filled with Panther Pride, full of collaboration and compassion for others, demonstrating an ongoing commitment to societal needs, and the determination to strive for excellence in all that we do. We celebrate our rich, cultural heritage by connecting students to academic and co-curricular experiences in our great community in Southwest Virginia. Students explore the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, lakes, rivers and small towns that are brimming with regional heritage all around our campus. Our students interact with a world-class group of scholars and staff that make Ferrum College a dynamic place to live, work, and learn. This is the Ferrum College Experience!
