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.

Social media has turned us into a society that looks down. We are captivated by life on a screen and missing out on the life right in front of us. But, is this all-consuming social media causing more damage than simply missing special moments? Is it changing us for the worse?
