“Equipping students for lifelong leadership and service” is at the core of Cedarville’s educational mission. With more than 70 years of military and law enforcement service between them, Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Loren Reno ’70 and Dr. Patrick Oliver bring a wealth of leadership experience to the classroom. While they teach undergraduate courses in business administration and criminal justice, respectively, they are collaborating to develop a leadership course for Cedarville’s M.B.A. program.
After a 38-year career, Reno held the rank of a three-star general when he retired as Deputy Chief of Staff for Logistics, Installations and Mission Support at the United States Air Force (USAF) Headquarters in Washington, D.C. For nearly three decades, Oliver served as the Chief of Police in Fairborn, GrandviewHeights, and Cleveland, Ohio, and as Ranger Chief of Cleveland Metropolitan Parks.
Both men are passionate about leadership and are unswervingly committed to the biblical principles that define their calling.
