Forward Together, the national tour for Cairn’s Forward campaign, brings the vision for Cairn University’s second century to our alumni and friends where they live, work, and serve.
Cairn University kicked off its Forward Together national tour in Washington, DC, on November 9. At the downtown headquarters of the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), attendees enjoyed dinner and connecting with alumni from several decades, who shared what God has been doing in and through their lives since graduation. The alumni present represented a variety of professional fields, including education, business, counseling, church ministry, law, and academia.
Guests responded enthusiastically to President Todd J. Williams’ presentation about the campaign, especially its emphasis on developing new programs in science and technology. Each new major will include the University’s academic distinctive: 30 credits of coursework in Bible and theology, preparing students for biblical integration in all classes. New degrees and majors will not only attract more students, but also increase retention of undergraduate students, whose career goals and majors often change at least once before graduation. As new academic programs have been developed over the past two decades, Cairn offers increased opportunities for students who seek to become both biblically minded and professionally competent in diverse fields, ranging from full-time ministry to corporate leadership.
To learn more about the campaign’s focus on new programs in computer science, health science, and the graphic arts, as well as other fundraising priorities, visit Cairn.edu/forward.
