A Christian University Puts Faith in Its Professors
Supiano, Beckie
Chronicle of Higher Education, v54 n34 pA1 May 2008
This article describes how Whitworth University has made personal essays about applicants' faith a key part of its hiring process. Faculty members are required by the university to explain in written personal statement what they believe and how it affects their academic work. Whitworth officials think this process provides them with a better sense of candidates' faith--and makes clear whether they would be a good fit for the university. This article also describes the disadvantages of Whitworth's stance on its hiring process.
