History and Christian Studies
Truett McConnell University
Dr. Emir Caner (Ph.D., University of Texas at Arlington) was elected the eighth president of Truett McConnell University in Cleveland, Georgia, in 2008. He is the first former Muslim to hold such a post at a Christian college or university. Since that time, the university has quadrupled in enrollment and added more than 20 programs of study, including a new Master of Arts in Theology. In addition to leading the university, Dr. Caner has written or contributed to 21 books, including the national best-seller Unveiling Islam. Featured on secular outlets (including ABC, CBS, and NBC) as well as Christian outlets (most recently John Ankerberg), Dr. Caner also co-hosts a weekly show, Morning Talk, on WDUN. He and his wife, Hana, reside in Cleveland, Georgia, with their three children.
