The Next 150: Preparing Students to Thrive in a Complex World
As Canada celebrates its 150th year in 2017, This CACSD will focus on and celebrate the past while looking to the next 150 years and what lies ahead in Christian Higher Education. The contemporary moment in higher education is accented by issues that require a complex response. The political and religious history that shaped the residential schools, the human effects on the global climate, economic instability, changing perspectives on gender and sexuality, technological transformations, mental health issues on the rise, and an increasingly globalizing, diverse and pluralistic world confront students and challenge them to seek ways to engage the world. All require a sustainable, robust and faithful response informed by the gospel. Christian student development professionals stand in a unique position to mentor and support students through this learning process. Join this pivotal conversation at the Annual CACSD conference in Calgary.
