National Faculty Leadership Conference

June 27-29, 2008 National Faculty Leadership Conference, Washington, D.C.

A conference for university professors and graduate students exploring the theme: "The Heart of the University Program"

Outstanding plenary speakers include Dr. J. P. Moreland, Dr. Ken Elzinga, Dr. Marla Frederick-McGlathery, and Bible exposition by Dr. Richard Pratt. Special guest presenters include Dr. William Lane Craig and Dr. Patricia Raybon. Our conference will be enriched with worship through music, fine arts performances, and prayer for the academy. Calls for scholarly papers will be issued in 12 academic tracks to address the conference theme and how believers might courageously apply moral and biblical wisdom and perspectives to issues within their disciplines. A variety of seminars designed to equip university professors and future professors for spiritual, intellectual and moral leadership in the academy will be offered. Special pre-conference workshops are also being planned. Sponsored by FACULTY COMMONS The faculty ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ International. See https://www.intre.org/event/info.php?s=43 for more information.


CEEC2008 in Pittsburgh

The next Christian Engineering Education Conference will be June 25-27, 2008 at Geneva College (near Pittsburgh, the ASEE site that year). The conference will conclude around mid-day on Friday, giving attendees time to get to the National Faculty Leadership Conference if they plan to attend both events.

We still need reviewers, worship leaders/readers/accompanists, and more.  Please contact Steve VanderLeest, svleest@calvin.edu, and indicate how you could help. The Call for Papers is now available on the CEEC web page (abstracts due by December 31, 2007).


In Memory of Peter Bosscher

Peter Bosscher was recently called home to glory after a couragous battle with cancer. Peter's life truly embodied the mission and vision of a Christian engineer. Since 1981 he taught at the University of Wisconsin. In 2002 he initiated a chapter of Engineers Without Borders at UW-Madison. He was also the key-note speaker at the 2006 Christian Engineering Education Conference. His address was entitled "Engineering for Shalom". He was an active member of the Geneva Campus Church and will be greatly missed by his family and the greater Christian engineering community.
