Whenever a university is able to combine strong nationally renowned scholarly research with Christian faith and fellowship, topped off with a delicious meal, you have a fantastic day.

Missouri Baptist University strives to promote academic excellence in a Christian environment. The third annual Faith and Learning Symposium allows faculty and graduate students from MBU and other universities to present their research within the context of faith and academic disciplines.

As the third annual Faith and Learning Symposium approaches Friday, April 9, in the Pitch Room of the Learning Center on the campus of Missouri Baptist University, an important question arises. Why do we need faith integrated into academic and scholarly endeavors at a university in 2021? This is the question we are asking faculty members, presenters and organizers of this year’s symposium.

Have you ever wondered if the student research projects your professors assign you really matter in the whole scheme of things? Well, they do matter, as MBU student researchers have learned each year since the first Student Research Symposium back in 2015. This year’s symposium will contribute to that body of understanding.
