perspectives on faith and life series


Perspectives on Faith and Life is a discussion series that generates meaningful discussion between students like you and the faculty who work on campus. Topics vary between diverse religious, academic and social subjects and faith perspectives. Led by faculty or staff speakers, each session includes speaker time and small group table discussions over a catered meal.

Through this informal yet impactful experience, you can participate in conversation that educates you, stretches your comfort zone and gives you a chance to share individual ideas and beliefs in a comfortable environment. It’s a place for you to get to know the University’s faculty a little better, and in a whole new light.
