Integrating Science, Culture, and Faith

The Center for Research in Science (CRIS) serves a community of students, scholars, and laypersons by promoting research that encompasses and extends the scope of scientific studies to address the inseparable relationships between science, faith, and culture. In addition, the role of science in a classical liberal arts education, and the ancient dialogue between faith and reason, are considered.

One of the center’s hallmark activities (open to the community at large) is hosting the popular Science, Faith, and Culture lecture series, in which experts from various disciplines present thought-provoking perspectives on important issues of the day. A variety of topics ranging from cosmological and biological origins to environmental stewardship to human dignity and bioethics are discussed.

We are very excited about inviting a series of devoted thinkers to come speak on these important subjects in the approaching academic year, and to make their teachings an integral part of the education experience at APU. We will be sure to keep the community posted about upcoming events as the schedule develops.

CRIS also encourages student and faculty research by arranging intra- and extramural internships, inviting visiting scientists to engage with students on campus, and working to establish synergistic partnerships with local businesses and organizations.
