 Dean's Corner


Dr. David Squires

Welcome to SAMC

Our world is full of art and ideas...everywhere we turn we encounter words, music, images. Human beings – created in the image of a Creator God – are fundamentally and amazingly creative. SAMC is a rich and stimulating academic community of people who believe in the power and the wonder of words and ideas, music and images, story and relationship. As highly creative and skilled artists, scholars, and leaders, we fully engage the culture in which we live, and are dedicated to mentoring students in the development of their own personal voice.
