Samuel W. Oliver, known to friends and colleagues as “Dub,” is president of Union University in Jackson, Tenn. Union became nationally known for deciding to resign from the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities because the CCCU would not sanction or terminate the membership of two colleges that condoned same-sex marriage. For the past 20 years, Oliver has witnessed firsthand the challenges Christian colleges face. He met with me in Asheville, N.C., to talk about the climate of Christian higher education.
