Despite the widely differing perspectives held by those who work in higher education, there is one goal upon which all educators and educational leaders agree: students should leave college stronger than they came. Now more than ever, today's students come to college with unique intellectual, emotional, relational, and spiritual challenges. They need more than appropriate curricula, programs, facilities, and resources. Educating college students well requires a concern for and commitment to a holistic vision of their care.
This volume examines the calling that Christian educators—in both curricular and cocurricular settings—share in relation to the students they serve. Join this unique blend of experienced practitioners and researchers, including Miroslav Volf, Sharon Daloz Parks, and John Foubert, in considering how we can best nurture our students toward health, wholeness, and purpose.
