卡尔文学院最近加入 新的美国高校 (NAC&U), a consortium of institutions that values liberal arts education, professional studies and civic engagement.

“Joining with institutions of similar size and academic scope in NAC&U allows us to enrich faculty work and better prepare our students for meaningful work and fulfilling lives,” said Michael Le Roy, president of Calvin College. “With our mission of equipping students to think deeply, act justly and live wholeheartedly as Christ’s agents of renewal in the world at the fore, we are excited to engage with NAC&U members in the important conversations in higher education.

In defining a New American College more than 20 years ago, education leader Ernest Boyer called for colleges and universities that define scholarship broadly to include not only research but also integration, application and teaching. NAC&U members are small- to medium-sized institutions across the nation that are committed to educational practices that allow students to connect theory to practice and classroom learning to real-world situations. 我mbers also emphasize civic responsibility from local, regional and global perspectives.

“Calvin College’s approach to education aligns with that of our members,” said Nancy Hensel, president of NAC&U. “Their emphasis on blending strong liberal arts programs with well-regarded professional studies while providing experiential education through community service, study abroad and undergraduate research makes Calvin an ideal fit for our consortium.”

勒罗伊还指出,合作伙伴提供卡尔文管理员,教师和工作人员有机会参与有关高等教育的全国对话与机构谁也有类似的课程产品和目标,它可以提供卡尔文学生有机会到自由主义的贡献得到认可卓越艺术,专业研究和公民参与。  

NAC&U also provides its members many opportunities to collaborate on projects and share best practices through an annual Summer Institute, constituency group meetings, shared benchmarking, and external and internal grant-funded projects.
