President Pete C. Menjares, Ph.D., is writing and speaking about diversity.
Menjares was the luncheon speaker on the first day of the 17th Student Congress on Racial Reconciliation (SCORR) February 22-23, 2013, at Biola University. The title of his talk was “Kingdom Proclamation: Implications for Campus Leaders.”
The annual conference attracts student leaders and others from many Christian colleges and universities, including FPU. SCORR’s mission is to “empower attendees to become catalysts for change through transformational learning and growth as they engage the diversity of the Kingdom of God,” according to the group’s website, studentlife.biola.edu/diversity/scorr/
Menjares also co-wrote an article published in January in Christian Higher Education titled "Developing Culturally Competent Faculty: A Cognitive, Affective, and Spiritual Model." Co-authors are Deborah L. Taylor, dean of university effectiveness and accreditation liaison officer at Biola University, and Cassandra Van Zandt, dean of the humanities and social sciences division at Biola.
