Workshop Brings Distance, Local Faculty Together

By Rachel Judy | August 16, 2011

On Friday, Aug. 5, Regent University's School of Undergraduate Studies (RSU) hosted its seventh annual Fall Faculty Workshop. The workshop is designed to bring adjunct faculty to meet with their on-campus counterparts, and this year, nearly 125 faculty attended.

The workshop included remarks from Dr. Gerson Moreno-RiaƱo, RSU's dean, who spoke about the mission and vision of RSU.

"RSU continues to build on a strong tradition of developing and nurturing outstanding faculty—both full time and adjunct," he explained. "This year we focused on the unique mission and identity of RSU along with tangible ways in which this mission and identity should influence every interaction we have with our students.

"We discussed how RSU's mission distinctives of 'cherish character', 'challenge culture' and 'serve the world' are powerful and extremely relevant objectives for today's college students and society," he continued. "Faculty and presenters discussed such topics as student academic support, retention, academic excellence and superb online and face-to-face teaching in order to prepare for our continued mission to educate tomorrow's Christian leaders."

The faculty also had a chance to meet with their departments and learn more about the resources Regent provides for them and their students.

The day concluded with a banquet featuring Dr. David Gyertson, distinguished professor of leadership formation and renewal. Gyertson spoke about the purpose and intent of Christian education—stretching the mind and cradling the heart. He stressed that it ultimately combines rigorous academic training coupled with the grace of Christian fellowship.

The fall faculty retreat is held in advance of each new school year. Fall classes begin on Monday, Aug. 22.
