Teaching is a Priority

Calvin science faculty remain dedicated to relating the Christian faith to the whole learning process.

Teaching is our first priority, an effort consistently recognized for its depth, scope and innovation.

We maintain leadership roles in professional organizations and participate in diverse areas of research and scholarship through which we mentor our student collaborators.

We are active researchers in our fields, contributing scholarly work to journals and other publications, and presenting at professional conferences on a regular basis.
