About Us

The de Vries Institute for Global Faculty Development (dVI) aims to expand the capacity of Christian faculty members to integrate the Christian faith with their work as scholars in meaningful, authentic, and transformative ways.

DVI carries out this mission not only among faculty at Calvin University and Calvin Theological Seminary, but with Christian faculty and institutions worldwide who are committed to a vital synergy between Christian faith and academic life.

A generous gift from the estate of Rimmer and Ruth de Vries made possible the founding of dVI as an institute of Calvin University.
