Should Professors Admit to Being Broken?

Should Professors Admit to Being Broken?

I have had people suggest that perhaps I am too transparent with my students. I don’t think that’s true. I tend to admit to having problems. I think it’s called being real. As a mature Christian – read old (I’ll be 70 in February) – I have been through a lot in my life. I have openly shared that in my classes. I also share that I would not have made it through a lot of those experiences if it hadn’t been for God. I believe that knowing that I deal with depression has helped my students – both here at ACU and at previous schools – feel that they can come to me and talk about their problems. The fact that I have admitted that I have not always followed Christ as I should have has helped students know that they could come to me with ANY problem they were facing – including those of a sexual nature. They know I will NOT be shocked by anything they share, and I will do my best to be understanding and loving. They also know I am not going to tell them something is right when it’s not! I’ve sinned enough in my life to know the consequences of “sowing the wind,” and all that “reaping the whirlwind” I’ve done would be wasted if I did not share it with my people! Sheila Walsh has written a number of books about her experiences trying to be the “perfect Christian” that she thought she should be. When she finally had a major breakdown, she spent some time in a mental hospital...

ACU Announces First Fall Commencement

Arizona Christian University is excited to announce the addition of a second commencement ceremony for the 2015-2016 academic year on December 12, 2015. This Commencement Ceremony has been added at the conclusion of the fall semester to accommodate the increasing number of traditional and Degree Completion Program (DCP) students completing their degree programs at this time. This will be the first December commencement in the History of Arizona Christian University that was founded in 1960 as Southwestern Conservative Baptist Bible College. Since its founding, the university has made several transitions and has grown and developed into a non-denominational, private, accredited, non-profit Christian liberal arts university that seeks to transform culture with truth. The need for an additional commencement ceremony attests to the growth of the school and its desire to be adaptive to the needs of the students. Traditional and DCP students finishing their coursework in December will still have the opportunity to participate in the spring ceremony if they choose on May 14, 2016. Having the option of the additional commencement ceremony gives ACU graduates the flexibility they need to be competitive in today’s job market. The lessons they’ve learned at Arizona Christian University, either as traditional students or as adult students who have returned to finish their degree in the DCP, will be taken out into the world as they carry on the mission and “transform culture with...
