Biography and Professional Achievements

Dr. John Aldridge serves as full-time online faculty and director of Organizational Leadership programs for the Business and Technology Division with the College of Adult and Graduate Studies (CAGS) at CCU. Aldridge also serves on CCU's 403B Finance Oversight and Centennial Committees and develops graduate curriculum for the Master in Organizational Leadership (MOL) and Master in Business Administration (MBA) programs for the Business and Technology Division. He helped develop the HLC proposal for CCU's MOL program that was successfully launched in 2013. The MOL has been in the top ten best graduate degree programs for the last two years in a row by Best College Reviews. Aldridge has been married to his wife Stephanie for 40 years and they are blessed with two children and three grandchildren.

Aldridge is a behavioral technologist with over twenty years of experience as a serial entrepreneur. He has founded seven start-ups and been an organizational development (OD) consultant. He has also served as a technical trainer, instructional designer, and change management consultant for multi-national Fortune 100 companies.

His mission is to seek first to listen and understand before he speaks. He wants to seek the truth and have the humility to allow God to guide his path, share His Word, wisdom, and all knowledge (John 15:15) with students and peers. Also he seeks to be a life-long learner, optimize personal and professional performance, and to help build spirits, not crush them.
