CarterBaldwin Executive Search is proud to partner again with Colorado Christian University in the naming of Eric Hogue as the school’s next president. Previously serving as the vice president of University Advancement for CCU, Eric assumed the presidency on June 1.
“Eric Hogue is uniquely qualified to lead the University during a tumultuous time for Christ-centered higher education,” said CCU’s Board of Trustees Chairman Will Armstrong. “The search committee was impressed at every step of the process by Eric and his vision for the University. As a natural leader and gifted orator, he brings an infectious passion for Colorado Christian University. He is a true champion for Christ-centered higher education!”
Eric ascends to the presidency as the University marks more than a decade of enrollment growth and expansion. As VP of University advancement at CCU, Eric directed a comprehensive fundraising program totaling more than $45 million, including $33.5 million for the Armstrong Center Campaign. He launched a $44 million Science Center Campaign, established the CCU Endowment Foundation to prioritize the rapid and sustained growth of future resources for the University, and birthed the CCU Fund and Hope Fund, which are projected to raise $1.5 million annually for CCU student scholarships.
Prior to joining CCU, Eric served for six years as the chief development officer of William Jessup University in Rocklin, CA, where he tripled WJU’s endowment fund and navigated two successful campus capital development campaigns.
He is known for his roles as a former political candidate; practicing theologian and pastor; and long-tenured radio, television, and media professional. Eric is the author of “The Winning Side of the Ask: The Heart and Skills of the Donor-Centric Professional Fundraiser,” a book dedicated to helping nonprofits design a thriving philanthropic culture.
Eric earned an MA in Theological Studies from Liberty University and a BS in Business Administration from William Jessup University.
