Virginia Union University Welcomes Dr. Richard Price as Dean of Chapel, Director of Faith Based Giving, and Professor
Posted By: Kennedy Williams on August 05, 2022

Virginia Union University is announcing new leaders in its academic and administrative teams.

“Accomplished people build top-tier universities,” said Dr. Hakim J. Lucas, President and CEO. “Virginia Union University is welcoming experienced new leaders who make great things happen and who will help propel us toward our goal of becoming Best in Class.”

Dr. Richard Price serves as Dean of Chapel, Director of Faith-Based Giving, and Professor. He is an ordained minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ and has served non-denominational congregations rooted in the Christian Restoration tradition in Mississippi, Pennsylvania, and New York. In addition, Dr. Price is an experienced professor who taught at the College of New Rochelle Brooklyn and Harlem campuses in areas of social science. From 2018-2022, he served as Tupelo Christian Preparatory School chaplain in Saltillo, Mississippi.

Dr, Price earned a Bachelor of Arts in History from Livingstone College; a Master of Arts in American History from St.



John’s University; a Master of Religious Leadership and Administration, and a Doctor of Ministry from New York Theological Seminary. His dissertation was Re-examining Early Prophetic African American Voices in The Church of Christ: A Best Practice Model for Community Engagement.

Dr. Price’s calling in life is to model ethical and moral faith-based leadership to improve all humanity. Currently, he is working on an academic publication examining the relationship between faith formations and advocacy.

Dr. Price is currently in his fifth term as the chairman of the Mayor’s Outreach Taskforce, an appointed official liaison between citizens, city officials, and law enforcement agencies. He is a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, the National Urban League, and has received numerous civic awards. Most recently, the Mayor of Tupelo, Todd Jordan, proclaimed May 29, 2022, as “Dr. Richard Price Day” for his advocacy and leadership throughout the community.

Dr. Price enjoys spending time with his family; he is married and has one daughter.
