ARTS AND HUMANITIES SCHOLARSHIP

REPORT

ISSUE N° 1


Mission Point Loma Nazarene University exists to provide higher education in a vital Christian community where minds are engaged and challenged, character is modeled and formed, and service is an expression of faith. Being of Wesleyan heritage, we strive to be a learning community where grace is foundational, truth is pursued, and holiness is a way of life.


scholarship and service. I am excited to invite you to browse through this report to give you an appreciation how our faculty in the College of Arts and Humanities are engaging these important areas of work. Like many universities, we use the Boyer model for scholarship, which includes the scholarship of discovery, application, integration and teaching/learning. The quality of each type of scholarship is typically judged in a rigorous manner by a community of peers within the related disciplinary fields of research, application or performance.  Most faculty members will not engage in every type of scholarship but each is vitally important for the life of the college. This continued activity keeps them active in their areas of expertise and encourages their growth as lifelong learners. Each type of scholarship that faculty members engage in can also offer various benefits to the students who interact with these professors either through direct engagement with a faculty mentor in a community of scholars or indirectly by engaging learning through intentional educational opportunities. I commend the great variety and the high quality of the scholarship represented by the College of Arts and Humanities in this report, but more importantly, the faculty members themselves who are represented within its pages.

I am pleased to present the first scholarship report from the College of Arts and Humanities at Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego, CA. As a robust college within a private liberal arts university, we strive to ask big questions and challenge students to think critically and authentically as they engage the world. The personalized curriculum we offer is informed by our role as scholars and Christ followers. By browsing the latest accomplishments included in this newsletter, I believe you will find the varied accomplishments relevant and pursued with the utmost integrity. Invitations to prestigious conferences, workshops, and distinguished lectures around the world demonstrate our commitment to peer-refereed scholarship. In addition, our faculty were featured by premier news agencies along with some of the largest news organizations in the world, including CNN, The Guardian, The New York Times,

The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, and The Huffington Post. From academic niches to culturally relevant topics, studying the arts and humanities at PLNU is approached with great care and tact. Join me in recognizing and celebrating the faculty of the College of Arts and Humanities at PLNU. These artists and scholars model what it means to be teachers and researchers at the highest level. It’s this dedication and spirit that informs the classroom and the robust learning community we have established on campus.
