I look forward to working with my colleagues at Belmont as we continue this trend of innovation and improvement to address the myriad challenges and opportunities facing higher education institutions.”
Gill received a Doctor of Education degree and Master of Science degree from the University of Alabama and a Bachelor of Science degree from Belmont University.
