Emmaus Faculty

Emmaus faculty members teach courses embedded throughout the Hope College curriculum.

In addition to other program requirements, Emmaus faculty members:

  • Engage with, learn from and teach important ideas using primary texts written by Christians and non-Christians
  • Cultivate intellectual virtues — read and write charitably, think carefully, listen respectfully, demonstrate intellectual humility
  • Charitably teach multiple sides of issues, including highlighting weaknesses and disagreements with their own positions
  • Respect students’ autonomy, allowing them to work out and practice their positions while holding them to high standards
  • Are Christians who affirm the creeds without reservation
  • Attend the Monday evening colloquium a minimum of once each semester or regularly attend a weekly or bi-weekly faculty colloquia at least one semester each year
  • Provide Emmaus students in your classes with substantive feedback on written or oral assignments and meet with students to discuss their responses
  • Meet for additional office hours with Emmaus students a few times each semester
