What about Faith and Scholarship?

Faith and Scholarship Discussion Series

The Faith and Scholarship Discussion Series takes place on Thursdays, in Schaap Science Center Room 1118 at 8 a.m. Typically a member of the Hope College faculty will lead a discussion about the integration of faith and scholarship in the context of vocation. In 2018 the series will be different. Each week we will discuss chapters from Todd Ream and Perry Glanzer's The Idea of a Christian College: A Reexamination for Today's University (Cascade Books, 2013). Copies of the book will be distributed;

This is an excellent opportunity to be part of a broader conversation about critically important issues. Coffee, juice, and bagels will be served, and we will be finished by 9 a.m.

The 2018 Discussion Series (tentative schedule):

The Faith & Scholarship Discussion Series is part of a vision for Hope College as a community of faithful Christian scholars. In order to build this, we—faculty, staff, and students—need to meet with one another in fellowship to discuss how the breadth of meaning inherent in terms like “faith” and “scholarship” creates a depth of their possible integration. We are not chairing the discussion of faith, scholarship, and vocation here at Hope College—no one is. The point is neither to impose a particular view nor to require anyone to learn, teach, research, or serve a certain way. If there is a reason for the discussion, it is to help build a community of Christian scholars faithful to the mission of integrating the lives of the mind and of the spirit, a community whose members are comfortably vulnerable about how they define and live out these terms and their relationship to one another, and a community that enacts and models the virtues of civil discourse for all to see.

The Faith and Scholarship Discussion Series is sponsored by a Professional Development Award from the Network for Vocation in Undergraduate Education (NetVUE), of which Hope College is a charter member, and the Associate Dean for Research and Scholarship. It is coordinated by Drs. Lindsey Root Luna, Andrew McCoy and Jonathan Hagood, Associate Dean for Teaching and Learning.
