"Biology in a Christian Environment: Does it Promote Student Success?" (Jack Stout)

Recommended Posts

Not exactly "origins" but some people might want to see it.

From the description:

A program developed by the Andrews University Biology faculty promoted student success in an environment of faith through fostering critical thinking, providing extensive faculty mentoring, involving students with extra-class teacher assistance, and experiencing undergraduate research (with student financial support by the university). External grants were welcomed, but not required, and expectations for publishing in peer reviewed journals were modest. The program appeared to be a success for the students and attracted support by the National Science Foundation for evaluation of the program.
