Academic freedom and the Christian college experience
We explore higher education and how recent cultural movements shape the college experience for today’s students. Pennsylvania and New York have a number of universities founded as Christian outreaches, and those Christian colleges are facing those pressures as are secular schools.
To get a snapshot of what is happening now, “Faith Under Fire” spoke with Dr. Wayne Lewis, president of Houghton University in New York’s Southern Tier. Dr. Lewis speaks about the uniqueness of being a Christ-centered institution, how schools can assure all voices are heard, and why it is important to assure that all students — from all sectors of the political/theological/social spectrum — feel at home on their campus and in their classrooms.
