Hammond, Michael D. – Christian Higher Education, 2019
The Council for Christian Colleges & Universities (CCCU) is the most successful higher education organization to emerge from the modern American evangelical movement. Especially within the context of the United States, higher education has been a key element of neo-evangelicalism since the 1940s. Rather than choosing "between"…

Haarsma, Deborah; Greuel, Brian; Lewis, Raymond – Christian Higher Education, 2019
The perceived conflict between science and Christianity continues to be a strong and prevalent narrative, both inside and outside the church. As three long-time science professors in Christian higher education, we have seen firsthand how this conflict orientation threatens both Christian faith and science education. National surveys confirm that…

Carter, Jennifer L. – Christian Higher Education, 2019
Of the 900 religiously affiliated colleges and universities in the United States, a sizable portion (approximately 118) are members of the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities (CCCU). As members of the CCCU, these institutions have a shared commitment to the academic and spiritual development of their students. However, relatively few…

Braun, Guilherme Junior; Potgieter, Ferdinand Jacobus – Christian Higher Education, 2019
In this article, we attempt to justify and present the basic presuppositions of a (Christian) confessional and narrative vision for philosophy of education in a postmodern context. We argue that although the nihilistic strand of postmodernity challenges the viability of religious discourse, postmodernity also re-opens the world toward its…

Lewing, James Morgan – Christian Higher Education, 2019
Service-learning is an educational strategy that aligns with the mission of Christian higher education, yet requires the support of multiple constituencies in order to become institutionalized and fully sustained. Faculty members are central to the implementation of service-learning, and they are influential in the institutionalization process.…

Roso, Calvin G. – Christian Higher Education, 2019
Service-learning (SL) is proven to have positive effects on student learning outcomes, critical thinking skills, student empathy, personal and interpersonal development, cultural awareness, and intrinsic motivation to study. Past studies on how SL is implemented have focused on either SL in the traditional classroom or the online classroom with…

Backfish, Elizabeth H. P. – Christian Higher Education, 2019
Christian educators recognize the value of biblical wisdom. Indeed, one of the foremost objectives of a Christian liberal arts education is that all members of the learning community would pursue and attain wisdom. Although wisdom is important as an end goal of Christian liberal arts education, this article proposes that wisdom can also serve as…

Luna De La Rosa, Mari; Jun, Alexander – Christian Higher Education, 2019
In this essay, we contend that there is much unfinished business ahead for Christian higher education. Our argument is grounded in the cumulative impact of long-standing frameworks and an expanding knowledge base on diversity and social justice in higher education. In 2013, we edited a special volume of this journal calling for focused work on…

Lang, Justin A.; Yandell, Lonnie – Christian Higher Education, 2019
This theoretical essay explores the ways predominantly White institutions (PWIs) "speak" about race and diversity as providing frameworks through which the campus racial environment is perceived and enacted. The major premise is that diversity language functions to conceal operations of systemic racism on campuses, producing inaction…

Guthrie, David S. – Christian Higher Education, 2018
Charles Gutenson's convicting words motivated me to attempt this essay. He writes: "If we are to engage in serious dialogue about the relationship between Christian faith and our [public] commitments, we must invest more energy in bringing Scripture to bear on them" (2011, p. 9). The common good seems a common conversation these days. To…

Dahlvig, Jolyn E. – Christian Higher Education, 2018
This paper argues that higher education should exist for society's common good, a focus that has been lost in recent years (Dorn, 2011; Eagan et al., 2015; Ford 2016; Habley, Bloom & Robbins, 2012). To explore how Christian higher education can provide leadership in returning to a focus on the common good, this paper traces the movement of…

Long, D. Stephen – Christian Higher Education, 2018
What does it mean to be a community in right relation with each other? That question, as well as a partial answer found in Taylor University's Life Together Covenant, still bear the marks of Wesleyan evangelical convictions. Exploring those convictions shines light for us on why this question and Taylor's covenant matter for Taylor University and,…

Bouma-Prediger, Steven – Christian Higher Education, 2018
Reconciliation is often understood as only having to do with our broken relationship with God. Yet we are alienated not only from God, but also from other people and the natural world. So we need help. Our brokenness extends to all things, thus we need to be put back into right relationships with all things. Such is the good news of Scripture: God…

Weeks, Matthew; Winningham, Katie James; Winningham, Brandon – Christian Higher Education, 2017
In this study, we investigated Benson, Donahue, and Erikson's (1993) concept of faith maturity as expressed by institutions of higher education (IHE) claiming religious affiliation. We examined the institutional mission statements of 87 schools affiliated with six Protestant denominations in search of evidence of their intention to develop the…
