I graduated from Cedarville College in 1978 and have gone on to spend over 30 years in higher education as a professor and administrator. I majored in Communication Arts, but I took a number of philosophy classes from Professor James Grier. They transformed the way I think, and for this, I will always be grateful.
The mission of Cedarville University, a Christ-centered learning community equipping students for lifelong leadership and service through an education marked by excellence and grounded in biblical truth, remains the same in 2013. Cedarville says it achieves its mission, in part, by helping students think broadly and deeply, by their learning how to evaluate ideas, practices, and theories across disciplines within the framework of God’s revelation.
I cannot see how Cedarville University’s ability to accomplish its mission will not be compromised, how it will not be diminished if it decides to eliminate its philosophy program.
