Associate Professor, Program Director, Intercultural and Religious Studies

Darren Duerksen, Ph.D., associate professor of intercultural & religious studies, has been awarded a $1,000 Christian Leadership in a Multifaith World Grant. This grant is sponsored jointly by the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities (CCCU) and Interfaith Youth Core (IFYC) to help pilot and evaluate a new curriculum  they are developing called the Christian Leadership in a Multifaith World curriculum. The grant dollars are divided into two categories: $500 is a personal stipend to acknowledge the time and effort on the project and the remaining $500 is intended to support programming costs related to at least one bridge-building project that engages students in our campus community. Duerksen will be integrating this content into his Religions of the World class in Spring 2021 and hopes to do the same with other classes in the future.
