Abstract

© Oxford University Press, 2014. This essay describes the historic ideals of Christian higher education, the complex history of church-related higher education in America, and the diversity of approaches that exist today. Rejecting a simplistic distinction between secular and religious higher education, the Jacobsens discuss the different roles that religious advocacy and religious neutrality can play at schools rooted in different religious traditions. The notion of traditionenhanced learning is used to describe the variety of ways that church-related colleges and universities incorporate religion into their work as educational institutions.
