Last week, I included this article by Dr. Dockery, President of Union University as a class assignment. I like this article - Dr. Dockery provided historical context of the origins of Christian Higher Education in the U.S - how the integration of faith and learning was the essence and goal of almost every college in America. However that has all changed and now we have about only 800 colleges and universities still maintaining some form of church relationship or affiliation.
Upon reading this article, students will learn about the foundation and purpose of Christian Higher Education. This understanding is important - I want them to reflect on what this means in their personal lives, in their faith walk, and how this worldview can impact others. I hope to share some of their reflections (in general terms) in a future post.
