On Wednesday, March 26, following Grace College spring Day of Worship, students and faculty will come together for Communitas, a scholarship forum designed to integrate academic excellence, creative expression, and Christian faith. The event is Grace College and Seminary’s third annual Communitas symposium, organized by the Office of Faith, Learning, and Scholarship. The symposium is a way to encourage student scholarship, highlight creative expressive, and foster the integration of faith and learning. Structured much the same as a professional academic conference, students will present papers, displays, artwork, and performances that range across the disciplines in a celebration of the vibrant sense of academic community at Grace College and Seminary.
“There are few opportunities for students to gather in a formal way to share academic interests, creative projects, artistic performances, and research,” explained Dr. Jared Burkholder, director of the Office of Faith, Learning and Scholarship at Grace College. “Communitas is an event that creates space for this to happen.”
The event will be held in Mount Memorial (2nd and 3rd floors) starting at 1:00pm. To see the full program, as well as learn more about student scholarship at Grace, visit the Office of Faith, Learning, and Scholarship’s page at www.grace.edu/student-scholarship .
