Debow, Sansom Get $32,000 Award from Atlas, Templeton

Samford professors Michael DeBow and Dennis Sansom have received a $32,000 grant to support a course designed to teach students the virtues and challenges of human liberty. The Freedom Project grant was awarded by Atlas Economic Research Foundation and the John Templeton Foundation.

DeBow, a Cumberland School of Law professor, and Sansom, chair of the Department of Religion and Philosophy, will teach the course during the spring 2001 semester. Entitled "Freedom, Prosperity and Faith: Recent History and Possible Futures," the interdisciplinary course will focus on what happens to a prosperous culture, such as that of the U.S., particularly as it relates to politics and religious beliefs and practices.

The grant money will be used in part for guest speakers in lectures open to the public.

DeBow and Sansom also participated in a weeklong seminar hosted by the Templeton Foundation at National University in Galway, Ireland.
