How Christian Colleges and Universities Can Prepare for the Future
Tens of thousands of Christian students make decisions about college each year. What ideas and beliefs inform their choice? What do they expect from their education? What factors incline them to consider Christian institutions? In short, what are today's students - at every stage of life - thinking, perceiving and valuing when it comes to the high-stakes investment of college education?
Like most faith-based institutions in North America, Christian colleges and universities are facing the headwinds of gale-force cultural change. By understanding the answers to these questions, you can help your institution adapt to social, religious and educational trends and make prayerful, data-informed decisions for the future.
