Winter Institute Courses

CONTEMPORARY TRENDS IN HIGHER EDUCATION – Drs. Brad Frey, David Guthrie, and Keith Martel

LEGAL ISSUES IN HIGHER EDUCATION – Dr. Jamie Swank
This course will discuss current policies and legal concepts concerning American institutions of higher education.  The aim of this course is to develop in the student a compass for spotting possible legal concerns that may arise in a variety of professional settings.  Students will have the opportunity to weigh and balance the sometimes competing rights and responsibilities of institutions, staff and students through lecture, discussion and case studies.

VOCATION OF TEACHER – Dr. Don Opitz
In this course, students examine various aspects of the college professorate in contemporary academe. Students will discuss and critique particular demographic descriptors of the academic profession and the numerous roles that faculty members fulfill.  In addition, students will be challenged to bring Christian criteria to bear on the nature and expression of the academic calling.
