Hellenic College Dean Dr. Demetrios Katos, Cantonis Professor Dr. James Skedros, Office of Vocation and Ministry Director Dr. Ann Bezzerides and Hellenic College Dean of Students Dn. Nicholas Belcher represented Hellenic College at a conference on Orthodoxy and Higher Education held recently at St. Vladimir's Orthodox Theological Seminary. Over the course of three days participants explored a wide range of topics relating to Orthodoxy and higher education, including curriculum, pedagogy,student body and student life, faculty and administration, the broader Orthodox community and the global community. These were discussed in the context of three plenary sessions: Orthodox Intellectual Life and the Mission of an Orthodox College; What Would an Orthodox College Look Like?; and Maintaining the Orthodox Character of the Orthodox College.
Hellenic College representatives were able to provide a unique perspective given that they are leaders in academics, ministry, and student life at the only accredited Orthodox four year liberal arts college in the western hemisphere. Dr. Katos' talk was entitled "Starting from Scratch? Designing a Program in Theology or Religious Studies at an Orthodox College." Dr. Bezzerides' presentation was "Career, Calling and Vocation at the Orthodox College". Dr. Skedros spoke on "The Church and the Orthodox College". Deacon Nicholas Belcher discussed "Challenges of Student Life at an Orthodox College."
