Less than a week after May graduation, a group of 20 faculty members from English, History, Classics, Exercise Science, and other departments teaching in Samford’s Core Curriculum were already planning for the fall semester.  Funded by a "Bringing Theory to Practice" grant, a national project funded by the Engelhard Foundation, the efforts are intended to foster student health and civic development through engaged learning.  The project is another example of Samford’s continuing commitment to providing transformative learning experiences for all students.


The world is better because of the commitment of our faculty to great teaching.
