Quincy Robinson: Preparing the Mind and Spirit

quincy_mainQuincy Robinson is a lot of things: scholar, leader, researcher, president, friend. He has a lot of goals ahead of him: master's degrees, a doctorate degree, a professorship at Stanford or Oxford. And although Multnomah's only a step in his journey, it's a significant step, and it's equipping him to pursue his passions and purpose.

"This school is an amazing place to push you forward," he says. "What lies ahead is going to be easier for me because I'm doing graduate-level work at the undergraduate level. I'm ever indebted to MU. It's like a family. The people here taught me how to love Jesus." Read his story.
