- The Faith-Based Summit is an optional add-on to your symposium experience
- Faith-based institutions share several common hurdles as we expand online and blended course offerings. Join us as we learn from each other in regard to topics like: challenges for faith-based online institutions, DEI in the faith-based classroom, student engagement, RSI, and adapting to student demographics. The half-day Wednesday and Friday summit provides administrators, professors, and staff a great time to build support networks across our faith-based institutions.
