Gen. David Young makes a presentation of future needs for the School of Aeronautics at a special meeting and luncheon Friday in the Williams Football Operations Center.  

Business executives, government officials and university administrators met today to learn more about the building campaigns of two of Liberty University’s fastest growing academic programs. 

Dr. Ron Sones is Dean of Liberty's the School of Engineering and Computational Sciences.

Gen. David Young, Dean of the School of Aeronautics (SOA), and Dr. Ron Sones, Dean of the School of Engineering and Computational Sciences (SECS), shared the vision and needs of each school. With enrollment in the SOA and the SECS continuing to rise, both schools are making plans for future growth and development, including new facilities and programs.

Chancellor Jerry Falwell, Jr. discussed how enhancing these academic programs furthers the university’s goals to improve the overall educational experience offered at LU.

“These schools are taking us beyond what a liberal arts college usually offers — to research and technical training that we’ve never had before, and we’re excited about it,” Falwell said.

As the university continues to grow, the addition of research and technical degrees are rounding out the academic programs, truly making Liberty University the top evangelical university in the nation.
