About Us

Welcome to Seminars at Calvin.  We are the program office for academic seminars and conferences at Calvin College.  We help our colleagues here at Calvin and a variety of working partners nationally and internationally to plan, promote and produce academic and professional events of the highest quality.  Here are the three regular features of our work:

  • Seminars in Christian Scholarship:  This is our “mother program,” an annual series of topical summer seminars, running continuously since 1996.  Our aim is to strengthen and encourage scholars and other learned professionals who pursue their work as a Christian calling.
  • Academic Conferences:  We manage academic conferences and workshops for Calvin and for external academic and professional groups.
  • Additional Summer Institutes and Seminars: We partner with a variety of study centers and national foundations to produce high-quality summer meetings for professors and professional leaders.  Recent clients include the National Endowment for the Humanities and the John Templeton Foundation.

Our staff has many years of professional experience in event management and professional development.  We offer a hearty welcome and caring Christian service to all our guests.
