Commencement Speaker

Jon R. Wallace

Jon R. Wallace is the president of Azusa Pacific University, an evangelical Christian university in Azusa, Calif. He has served as president of APU for 18 years, the second-longest presidential tenure in APU’s history. The 2018–19 academic year will mark his last year as president of APU as he accepts a new role as president emeritus.

Known for his ethical leadership and heart for college students, Wallace became APU’s 16th president in 2000. He received his Bachelor of Arts and MBA from APU, as well as a Doctor of Business Administration from United States International University.

When Wallace was a new APU graduate, he accepted a job as a campus custodian. His 40 years in higher education provide him with a deep appreciation for APU’s far-reaching impact and value for faculty, staff and students. He has served on the boards of the Association of Independent California Colleges and Universities and the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities.

Wallace is a member of Foothill Community Free Methodist Church in Azusa, where his wife, Gail, is an associate pastor. They have three adult children: David, Matt and Kate; two daughters-in-law; one son-in-law; and five grandchildren.
