Dr. Phil Schubert
Dr. Phil Schubert, a 1991 graduate of Abilene Christian University, became the 11th president of ACU in June 2010.
During his tenure as president of one of the largest private universities in the Southwest, ACU has experienced remarkable growth in facilities and enrollment. ACU is nearing completion of a $95 million expansion that includes a new science complex and an on-campus football stadium. The university is in year three of a four-year reclassification process to Division I athletics as a member of the Southland Conference.
The most recent freshman classes have been some of the largest in the university’s 110-year history, and graduate enrollment has grown dramatically through the launch of a new ACU Dallas campus.
Prior to becoming president, Schubert served as executive vice president at ACU and was responsible for university-wide strategic planning as well as the oversight of operational areas. During his 17 years on campus, he served as vice president for finance and administration, chief financial officer, director of financial operations, director of student financial services and development officer. Prior to coming to ACU, he worked for the accounting firm of Arthur Andersen & Co.
Schubert received his B.B.A. in accounting from ACU, an MBA from Duke University and an Ed.D. in higher education management from the University of Pennsylvania.
