Integrating Faith & Learning

For Assistance

To fulfill Regent's mission, faculty are required to integrate faith and learning in their curriculum. Be sure to review the University's Faculty and Academic Policy (see Worldview and Hermeneutics Understanding) regarding integration of faith and learning. Additionally, you will want to visit the Center for Christian Thought and Action.
