The Christian College Advantage? The Impact of Christian versus Secular Training among Faculty at Christian Colleges and Universities
Alleman, Nathan F.
Journal of Research on Christian Education, v24 n3 p252-270 2015
Are faculty trained at Christian institutions better equipped to integrate their faith with their professional work? This study uses a mixed methods analysis of Council of Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU) faculty survey data to analyze whether and in what ways faculty who graduate from Christian undergraduate, master's, and doctoral programs are more apt to identify connections between their faith tradition and their course objectives. Findings show that faculty members prepared at Christian institutions are more likely to see this relationship and may conceive of it in more sophisticated ways. However, the gap is modest.
