Dr. Everett Piper is the fifth president of Oklahoma Wesleyan University. In his 14 years as president of OKWU, Piper has become known for his passionate defense of intellectual freedom. He advocates tirelessly for cultural courage grounded in the conservation of time-tested truths, and is the 2016 recipient of the Jeane Kirkpatrick Award for Academic Freedom. His commentary on religion, education, and politics challenges the intolerant tolerance of today’s academic community. Dr. Piper is the author of Why I Am A Liberal, and Other Conservative Ideas and the viral op-ed, “This is Not a Daycare, It’s a University”. His op-eds are routinely featured in local and national news outlets and he serves as a regular guest on talk-radio across the nation.

A native of Hillsdale Michigan, Dr. Piper and his wife Marci, along with their two sons—Seth and Cobi—have served as OKWU’s First Family since August of 2002. Dr. Piper actively participates in the Bartlesville community and the Wesleyan church, and serves on a variety of councils and boards relating to Christian leadership, public policy, and community leadership.
