There are many great institutions of higher education, but there is only one Samford University. Here, a dedicated faculty and energetic students join to create a community of learning and faith like no other. The beauty of Samford’s campus is virtually matchless, but it pales in comparison to the quality of our people. From the classrooms and laboratories to the artistic stages and athletic venues, the minds and souls of Samford people make the real difference. Samford people bring the best, they are demanding and compassionate, they know the importance of engaging the world with a faith that calls them to serve. Each Monday, I share one of their incredible stories to illustrate how our people impact the world.

Monday Mission, June 15, 2020

A few days ago, faculty from our Orlean Beeson School of Education and the Hope Institute joined colleagues from the University of Tennessee Knoxville, the University of Alabama and Lipscomb University to sponsor an event called “Character Convening.”

 The sessions enabled faculty from the institutions to discuss current research and practice of character education at colleges and universities.  Samford is at the forefront of these discussions.  You may read about the conference here: https://www.samford.edu/education/news/2020/School-of-Education-Co-sponsors-First-Ever-Character-Convening-in-Higher-Education

The world is better because of the character-building work of our Samford faculty.
