/ Emmaus Scholars Program

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
  • Abstain from activism in the classroom, teaching multiple sides of an issue and highlighting reasonable disagreements with their own position
  • Respect students’ autonomy, allowing them to work out their positions while holding them to high standards
  • Attend Emmaus colloquia and evening prayer
  • Are Christians who affirm the creeds without reservation
