Christian Higher Education

“Christian higher education must exist in a genuine cosmology. The word ‘university’ is derived from the idea of universe; that is, a university is a microcosm of the larger world–or it should be. For a few years, people of all kinds should live and learn together, so that they can continue to do so for the rest of their lives. This is the relational mandate in education.
When a school truncates its educational cosmology, it diminishes its students’ ability to develop the integrative capacity to co-exist in society, which is already diverse and global. It creates graduates who only know how to get along with those who are like them–a problem in its own right, but one that has the seeds to sow suspicion of “the other” who is unlike them.” – Steve Harper
