Conducting research and scholarship at Dordt is a way for students and faculty to come face-to-face with the intricate nature of God's creation. Scholarly endeavors lead to the creation of new artistic works, discoveries of laws and principles, a better understanding of how students learn, and point to an awesome, powerful, and wonderful God. This is an experience of the sensus divinitatus-a feeling like what we'd experience in the presence of a radiant sunset or holding a newborn baby. Experiencing the wonders of God is one reason that research and scholarship are an integral part of the fabric of the Dordt learning community.
Research and scholarship at Dordt takes many forms including:
- An undergraduate summer research program
- Faculty scholarly endeavors
- The Andreas Center for Reformed Scholarship and Service
- Speaker series (e.g., First Mondays)
