Since 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. 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 University.
