Dr. Wells will share a presentation titled, “The Limits of Secularism.” In the last decade, “nones,” or those who express no religious affiliation, are on the rise.

Dr. Wells became the twenty-second president of Emory & Henry College on July 1, 2019 after having served as the chief academic officer at three higher education institutions.
