Teaching and Faith
Faith Integration is vital to the work of an academic professional at a Christian institution of higher education. All aspects of the faculty life - teaching, scholarship, and service - are informed and illuminated by our faith.

Fellowships on Faith Integration
The Teaching and Learning Center offers two fellowship opportunities for faculty to explore faith aspects of their content areas of interest. One fellowship is open for new faculty, with one to four years of experience at CBU. The second fellowship is open to tenured faculty. Both fellowships provide faculty with the funding to attend a pre-selected conference on faith integration as well as a $500 stipend per semester (total of $1,000 per fellow) to write and speak on faith integration.
The conference for this year is the Institute for Faith, Teaching, and Learning at the C.S. Lewis Study Center in Northfield, MA. The Institute will be led by Dr. Scott Key with guest speakers with expertise in faith integration. Dates are August 6th - 9th with travel to Northfield and a welcome on the 6th and a closing session with travel back to Riverside on the 9th.
Faculty interested in applying for the 2020-2021 fellowship should download the application information and submit a completed application packet by March 13, 2020.
Seminar on Faith in the Academic Profession (SOFAP)
At CBU, the Seminar on Faith in the Academic Profession (SOFAP) provides faculty with the opportunity to examine the impact faith has on all aspects of our profession - teaching, service, scholarship, and colleagiality. Topics in SOFAP include discussions about our faith (the Bible, the life of Jesus, the Trinity of God), how a biblical worldview shapes our work (teaching, scholarship, and service), and specific strategies for ensuring our students are learning about their discipline through a biblical perspective. These concepts are explored through a speaker series, workshops, book studies and more! We invite you to select from the list below to engage in this important conversation.
