The Office of Christian Ministry and the College of Arts and Sciences has scheduled the inaugural Heritage Lecture at Ashland University on Thursday, April 28 at 4:00pm in the Heritage Room in Upper Convo.
The Heritage Lecture series has been created to annually bring a scholar from the Brethren-Anabaptist tradition to campus to share a topic of relevance with our community. The idea is to articulate a Brethren understanding of the word "Christian" and to consider the original vision of Ashland College.
The lecture, titled "A College Set on a Hill: The Early History and Vision of Ashland College/University," will be given by Dale Stoffer, Professor of Historical Theology at Ashland Seminary. He will be sharing an overview of the history of the college during its challenging early years and its significant progress by the 1930s. He will then focus on the college's original vision and consider what Ashland's founding ethos means for us today.
