Guthrie, David S. – Christian Higher Education, 2018
Charles Gutenson's convicting words motivated me to attempt this essay.

The common good seems a common conversation these days. To…

Allen, Todd; Custer, Dan – Christian Higher Education, 2018
In recent years, the topic of multiculturalism has often been a divisive issue. Although some argue that highlighting particularities allows for richer and more productive dialogue across differences, others choose to emphasize humankind's similarities with the belief that this focus on commonalities will create a greater sense of unity. This…

Toms, Cynthia – Christian Higher Education, 2018

Dahlvig, Jolyn E. – Christian Higher Education, 2018
This paper argues that higher education should exist for society's common good, a focus that has been lost in recent years (Dorn, 2011; Eagan et al., 2015; Ford 2016; Habley, Bloom & Robbins, 2012). To explore how Christian higher education can provide leadership in returning to a focus on the common good, this paper traces the movement of…

M. O'Connor, Candy – Christian Higher Education, 2018
In the midst of numerous global uncertainties, leaders are expected to have the ability to articulate a compelling vision of a preferred future that energizes and engages followers. In fact, Kouzes and Posner (2009) have argued that "Being forward-looking--envisioning exciting possibilities and enlisting others in a shared view of the…

Graham McMinn, Lisa – Christian Higher Education, 2018
What does it look like to cultivate a community in right relationship with God? In taking the focus off individual members and placing it on the community itself, we recognize that the whole of a university is greater than the sum of its parts, and that individual parts are repeatedly and continually shaped and defined by the whole. Being in right…

Long, D. Stephen – Christian Higher Education, 2018
What does it mean to be a community in right relation with each other?

Exploring those convictions shines light for us on why this question and Taylor's covenant matter for Taylor University and,…

Bouma-Prediger, Steven – Christian Higher Education, 2018
Reconciliation is often understood as only having to do with our broken relationship with God. Yet we are alienated not only from God, but also from other people and the natural world. So we need help. Our brokenness extends to all things, thus we need to be put back into right relationships with all things. Such is the good news of Scripture: God…
