SymposiumWebslim Nov2016

The Fall 2016 Midwest Faculty Symposium invites you to join us for a one-day multi-campus symposium with Dr. Christian Lundberg to explore “Dialogue within the University“. A cluster-conference to gather colleagues from six campuses across four states to learn from, dialogue with, and engage one another using dynamic technology.

How can we better write and speak about our work on campus and our faith in Jesus Christ to a broader audience?
We are followers of Christ and through him “all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible” (Col 1:16).  As university faculty, grad students, administrators, and staff, we are engaged in exploring these things– and as such we have the unique opportunity to help others see the points of connection between Christian faith, life, and culture; between ancient wisdom and new discoveries.
In this symposium there is space to consider where the voice of the Christian scholar is needed, and practical ways to engage in these conversations.  Anyone who wants to bring their faith into writing and public conversations in a way that is grace-filled yet confident, whether in the university or in other contexts, would find this symposium beneficial.
