Lilly Fellows Program in Humanities and the Arts
Linwood HouseSince 1991, Valparaiso University’s Christ College has been home to the Lilly Fellows Program in Humanities and the Arts, a nationally prominent initiative that has played a major role in revitalizing Christian higher education in the United States.  The Lilly Fellows Program was developed through the leadership of former CC Dean Mark Schwehn, who continues to serve as LFP Project Director.

Christ College is directly related to the Lilly Postdoctoral Teaching Fellowship. Each year three scholar-teachers with newly completed doctorates receive two-year appointments as faculty members in Christ College.  As part of their preparation for potential careers at church-related colleges or universities in the United States, the Lilly Fellows teach courses in both Christ College and the College of Arts and Sciences at Valparaiso.

With their high energy and fresh perspectives, the Lilly Fellows have proven very popular with Christ College students.  Besides teaching in existing CC courses, including the Freshman Program, they offer exciting interdisciplinary courses on a variety of topics.
