Faith and the Liberal Arts
Contact Ernest Simmons, Director, Dovre Center for Faith and Learning (x3430), if interested in the following programs:
Faculty Mentoring Program in Faith and Learning: Newer faculty and administrative staff are invited to explore connections between faith and learning within their own work at the college. Following a two-day workshop in August, the group meets on a monthly basis throughout the year, developing individual projects based in their own disciplines; these projects are presented in a final one-day workshop. Participants receive honoraria of $600.
Faith and Learning Lectureship: This program celebrates faculty explorations of the interactions between faith and learning in a particular discipline; lecturers receive a $2,000 stipend.
Faculty Study Grants in Faith and Learning: Grants of $500 to $1,000 to support faculty exploring the interactions of faith and learning in their disciplines.
Faculty Discussion Group Grants: Grants of $500-$750 are offered in support of explorations among peers of the relationship between faith and disciplinary concerns.
Introduction to Faith and Learning in Higher Education Workshop: This workshop considers how Christian faith affects the way a church-related college approaches the liberal arts. Participation is by invitation; participants receive stipends of $100 per day.
Conference Support: Faculty registration for Charis Ecumenical Center activities as well as other conferences that connect faith and learning is available to all faculty and administrative staff.
