An Opportunity for Influence: Collaboration Among the Christian Business Faculty Association and Christian Business Faculty at Christian and Non-Christian Universities
Few Christians would deny that greater Christian influence is needed on the campuses of non-Christian universities, and the Christian business faculty members already at these universities are the primary agents to exert such influence. Collaboration among the Christian Business Faculty Association (CBFA), Christian business faculty at Christian universities, and Christian business faculty at non-Christian universities presents a tremendous opportunity to introduce and enhance the influence of Christ not only on university campuses, but also throughout society. In this paper, we suggest several ways that Christ’s influence can be extended through increased cooperation among those already serving him in their various spheres of influence. Among other suggestions, we encourage increased co-authorship among Christian faculty at Christian and non-Christian universities, as well as targeting of Christian and non-Christian journals with articles written from a Christian perspective. We also encourage the CBFA to operate to the full extent of its mission by leading the way to facilitate collaborative scholarship among faculty at Christian and non-Christian universities.
