About the Seminar
Abilene Christian University is partnering with the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities to host a research seminar series investigating the benefits of high-impact practices in Christian higher education. Each cohort of High-Impact Scholars will meet for two intensive workshops to focus on a specific practice (e.g., first-year experience, service learning, study abroad, etc.) and examine the impact and implementation in Christian higher education. After the three-day workshops, participants will engage in research at their respective institutions the following year.
Findings and institutional practices will be showcased at a national conference hosted by ACU, and scholars will have the opportunity to submit their work to be considered for inclusion in an edited volume.
High-Impact Scholars will have the unique opportunity to learn from ACU’s national leadership in high-impact practices and collaborate with faculty and staff from various institutions across the nation to produce work that will be a significant contribution to scholarship of Christian higher education.
These cohorts of Christian faculty and staff investigating creative and innovative evidence-based practices will enhance the learning experiences of students across the nation.
