Center for Faith and Inquiry

The Center for Faith and Inquiry is dedicated to forming the thoughtful Christian for global engagement.

The Center for Faith and Inquiry is dedicated to the development and the promotion of intentional Christian scholarship that addresses matters of vital concern in the church, academy and contemporary society. We seek to foster accessible and stimulating scholarly conversations across disciplines, across disagreements, and across faiths by welcoming speakers to campus, hosting academic events, and by supporting faculty and student research. Through this work, we bring the rich resources of the Christian faith to bear on key academic questions and debates in contemporary culture.
