BIG BREAKING NEWS – UNEXPECTED SOURCE: Christian colleges invite non-Christians to help develop Christian curriculum on Christian leadership [#CCCU #ChristianLeadership] 10/20
In a forthcoming curriculum program on Christian leadership, Christian colleges are partnering with an unexpected source: non-Christians.
The Council for Christian Colleges and Universities, which says it represents about 150 institutions in North America, developed an online curriculum with Interfaith Youth Core titled “Christian Leadership in a Multifaith World.”
The grant program for CCCU faculty and staff is intended to either be integrated into existing college courses or “co-curricular leadership programs on CCCU campuses,” offering a series of online activities.
CCCU’s page for campus grants says the curriculum “explores the Christian foundation for interfaith engagement, builds students’ religious literacy, and equips students to lead bridge-building activities in their communities.”
The organization twice refused to answer questions about why it’s inviting people outside the Christian faith to design a Christian curriculum and how it will ensure the curriculum doesn’t water down Christian teaching.
A CCCU spokesperson provided a written statement that largely repeats its messaging about the curriculum.
The group also could not define “systemic racism” – a phrase that appears on the first line of the request for proposals from CCCU faculty and staff.
