Mission & Vision
The mission of the Andreas Center is to advance the development and influence of Reformational thought and its service to God's kingdom by broadening the generational and geographical impact of Dordt University. The Andreas Center carries out its mission by supporting and expanding opportunities, both on and off-campus, for students, faculty, and staff to engage culture globally through scholarship and service.
Our global vision as a Reformed, Christian college is what captured the imagination of Lowell, and his estate gift will further our efforts to broaden Dordt's service, learning, and presence in the world.
Consistent with this vision, the Andreas Center is where Dordt University does Christian scholarship in public for the common good of the academy, the church, and society.
The Andreas Center supports these areas of Christian scholarship:
- In All Things Online Publication
In All Things online publication – engages the community beyond campus through conversations and perspectives through essays, book reviews, and interviews connecting faith to our work and culture in the public sphere. Voices include the Dordt Community, contributing writers, reformed thinkers, and others who help advance our perspectives and provide thoughtful insight on issues of relevance and importance.
- First Monday Speaker Series
Diverse voices that engage the intersection of culture and faith on campus at Dordt University. The First Mondays Speaker Series brings thinkers, writers, and cultural leaders to Dordt to discuss with the campus and broader community ideas that will stretch our imaginations, grow our understanding and help us re-form our world in God-honoring ways.
