The University is a unique institution, and a symbol of knowledge and culture. Historically, it has been an unmistakably religious institution, committed to a belief in and a pursuit of truth, as revealed in God’s Word (Scripture) and by God’s works (nature). It has aspired both to push back the boundaries of human understanding through research, and to pass on the fruits of learning through education. Today this dual mission is under heavy fire, and the very notion of a unified field of knowledge is considered passé. The Christ and the University Project aims to explore the Christian origins of the University, assess the ramifications of the loss of these religious roots and imagine what the University could be if its Christian heritage was to ground it once again. By attending to past, present and future dimensions of the relationship between the University and Christian faith, the Christ and the University Project is aimed at a multi-faceted reassessment of what the University can and should be.
