Kick-off Address by Matt Walhout (Dean for Research and Scholarship)
This is a time of political uncertainty, discord, and violence. It is a time that calls for patience, courage, and careful deliberation in the pursuit of justice and peace. The mission of Calvin College is to equip people to be Christ’s agents of renewal. How will we equip each other for the long haul? This kick-off address will provide a framework for the Just Citizenship series.

About the Just Citizenship series
This series has been organized by the Dean for Research and Scholarship under the Provost's Faith and Citizenship Initiative.
What does it mean for Christians to think deeply and act justly in this time of political uncertainty? Just Citizenship is a weekly series of interdisciplinary lectures and panel discussions addressing current issues and asking how Christians can work for renewal in society. Join us in the Chapel each Monday at 3:30 during the spring semester; all of these events are free and open to the public. Find out more about the series and related events.
The Just Citizenship series has been approved for State Continuing Education Clock Hours (SCECH) in the state of Michigan. For every forum you attend, you can earn one clock hour of SCECH credit for certificate renewal. For more information and a SCECH application form, please visit our homepage for the series.
