Professors Give Perspective on Faith-Informed Political Science

The Belmont political science department discussed the idea of faith-informed political science Wednesday in a convocation for students. Dr. Vaughn May (chair), Dr. Susan Jellissen and Dr. Nathan Griffith said that while their faith does impact their teaching and research, it is important to translate empirical evidence into a way others can understand. The professors agreed that they encourage the discussion of a wide range of perspectives in the classroom and the importance of students themselves searching for their own meaningful truths.
