Faith and Learning

CCU's commitment to the integration of faith and learning truly sets it apart from other institutions. Growing up, I didn't always feel like my faith was relevant to my love of literature and writing until I had a teacher who allowed me to explore those connections. I hope to encourage in my students the same idea that what they love--whether it be literature, writing, or any other subject--is not divorced from who they are in Christ and that in fact they are vital and integral components of who He created us to be.
