Senior fellows from the Samford University Center for Science and Religion have received a $75,000 grant from the Teagle Foundation to explore the integration of big questions of meaning and value into traditional science and math courses and into scientific research. This project will involve other institutions in the Birmingham Area Consortium for Higher Education and will be managed by Dr. Wilton Bunch, Dr. Steve Donaldson, Dr. George Keller, and Dr. Tom Woolley.
