Meet the President

Pres with Students OC Hands

To know him is to love him. OC President John deSteiguer brings joy, laughter and leadership to our campus.

You will see him on Instagram live streaming devotional messages and important campus health updates, cruising down sidewalks on his scooter, hanging out with First Lady Darla and even serving students coffee in the Brew.

What you won’t see on social media is the way President deSteiguer’s smile lights up when a student shouts, “Hey Johnny D!” across the quad. Once you visit, you’ll learn he is always prepared to meet with students by keeping his office stocked with a constant supply of tissues and peanut M&Ms, ready to comfort or celebrate any occasion. And, he models servant leadership with faculty and staff, showing kindness and constantly encouraging innovative ideas.
