Having spent the majority of her academic career teaching and living by a range of worldviews, Mary Poplin now undergirds her academic vocation to improve education for the underprivileged with the radical change of worldview she wrestled with while she was Dean of the School of Educational Studies at Claremont Graduate University. In her presentation, Professor Poplin will describe her unexpected encounter with Christ in her early 40s, and the impact that her experience of volunteering with Mother Teresa had on her professional and personal life. Students and professors will be challenged to think through the deep assumptions that shape their own lives and work and to consider the historic Christian faith as an intellectually credible and experientially satisfying basis for living in today’s world.
