The philosophy and religion department has a long tradition of social justice activism and is home to some of BVU’s many socially conscious student organizations. Many students are engaged in projects both global (Amnesty International) and local (Beaver Animal Rescue and Care) in scope.
Their projects have included attending the National Amnesty International Conference in Washington D.C., hosting the annual Puppy Carnival fundraiser for a local dog shelter, and building homes with the Buena Vista County chapter of Habitat for Humanity. The department supports students’ good work both by joining in their efforts and, when needed, by contributing funds to make those efforts possible.
BVU is a terrific place to teach because we are all committed to helping students become whole people, cultivating their various skills and passions and putting them all together to create a more meaningful life.
