Westmont Magazine Studying Faith and Learning
Thanks to funding by a grant from the Lilly Foundation, Westmont is participating in a faculty-exchange program with three other universities.
Richard Hughes, a professor at Pepperdine University, secured the grant for the project, which includes Pepperdine, Loyola-Marymount University, Cal Lutheran University, and Westmont.
The project will examine the relationship between religious tradition and academic enterprise and is intended to cultivate connections among schools with similar missions.
Ten faculty members and administrators from each institution will meet once a semester over the next two years, rotating locations. Westmont hosts the meeting in fall 2001.
