What We Do
Our interdisciplinary faculty fellowship includes regular dinners and discussions hosted in faculty homes on topics related to the nature of the university, work/life balance, and academic vocation. We also meet with faculty individually and collectively in other settings, including an annual retreat.
Our mentoring program matches interested Washington University students with mentors in the St. Louis community. By focusing on calling and not just career, our mentors help students integrate heart, mind, soul, and strength. We currently pair lawyers with law students, with plans to extend to other sectors in the future. Separate from our mentoring program, we offer reading groups that bring faculty and students together, often in faculty homes or other informal venues, and always with food.
Pastors & Ministry Leaders
Our faculty regularly advise out of their subject matter expertise through individual meetings, talks to church groups, and community forums. We have spoken at dozens of churches and ministries in the St. Louis region on topics including race, art, memory, pluralism, scripture, creativity, and religious freedom. We also plan to launch a faculty seminar series that will provide ongoing content to local and national pastors and ministry leaders.
