CCU Spotlights

I learned a great deal at CCU, but I am most grateful for professors who challenged me to think critically about faith. I am fortunate to have received a challenging education from professors with diverse beliefs that offered various viewpoints on important issues.

The academic preparation of my psychology courses, thanks largely to the dedication and rigor of the professors, have helped me continue my education and earn a PhD. Furthermore, CCU provided intellectual diversity that requires students to think critically about their faith and provide answers for their beliefs, rather than offering students pre-packaged (overly-simplistic) answers for challenging issues. CCU helped teach me how to think, not what to think.
