Mission

The Office of Faith Integration exists to facilitate the dialogue between academics, the knowledge of their discipline and/or profession, and the Christian faith by resourcing our faculty in their efforts to bring faith to life in their research, their teaching, and their scholarship.

The faculty fellows who make up the office understand it is their role to promote a positive and well-resourced culture that will be marked by excellence in carrying out informed reflection on, and discovery of, Christian faith within the academic disciplines, professional programs, and lived practice, resulting in the articulation of Christian perspectives on truth and life in order to advance the work of God in the world.

Priorities of the Office of Faith Integration
1.) We resource the university’s faculty
2.) We consult the university’s academic programs
3.) We champion the university’s faith-based mission
