Why Teach at AU?

“I teach philosophy at AU because I think there’s a deep connection between the Christian life, Christian education, and philosophical reasoning. Of all the places that should teach philosophy and require it of its students, it’s at a Christian university. I teach here because, in part, AU values that insight and actively seeks that it’s accomplished.”
