Who was Saint Patrick?

In honor of today’s holiday, History Department Chair Dr. Daniel Scalberg shares some little known history behind Saint Patrick. 

Americans are famous for secularizing and refitting for commercial purposes religious holidays. Christmas and Easter immediately come to mind as days that carry little resemblance to their former Christian penitential and sacred associations and are now more suited as materialistic seasons during which we are encouraged to purchase items for personal pleasure.  Read the rest of this entry »

PORTLAND, Ore. – The path to a career in medicine just became a little less daunting for biology majors at Multnomah University.

MU is teaming up with University of Western States to offer an accelerated program that allows students to earn a Doctor of Chiropractic degree in six years. The program involves three years of biology at Multnomah and three years of study at UWS, saving students an entire year of academic work and tuition compared to the traditional DC route.

“This is a first for us – this is a new day,” said Dr. Daniel Scalberg, dean of the School of Arts and Sciences at Multnomah. “It means that we’re now in the same league as Portland State and Oregon State, who have the same agreement. For students who are motivated, they can be a fully certified DC six years from the time they arrive at MU.”

Under the agreement, MU students will be admitted to UWS when they complete the pre-chiropractic program with a minimum 3.25 GPA. They’ll finish their fourth year of undergraduate work at UWS to earn their biology degree, and then they’ll be poised to wrap up the DC program two years later.

Multnomah students will have access to state-of-the-art lab facilities and equipment at UWS, which offers numerous degree options for aspiring allied health professionals. Students also will have access to the admissions staff at UWS to ensure a smooth transition between schools.

“Our students will be able to call their Admissions office anytime, and their folks will be excited,” Scalberg said. “They will welcome our students as their own.”

Bad things happen. It’s a fact we all have to deal with, and there are better and worse ways to deal with it. However, even though we all have our own thoughts about trauma, we may rarely get to articulate them, sit with them or address them in any way. That’s where MU comes in. The Institute for Theology and Culture: New Wine, New Wineskins (New Wine), in partnership with Multnomah University and Multnomah Biblical Seminary, is hosting the Trauma and Resilience Conference from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, March 18.

Looking to the Prince of Peace

Amid a country deeply divided over the upcoming inauguration of America’s 45th president, we as believers in the King of Kings can find some much-needed encouragement from Isaiah 9:6.

“For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us;

And the government will rest on His shoulders;

And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor,

Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.”

As we embrace the Advent season and celebrate the birth of the Prince of Peace, this truth remains constant: After more than 80 years, the men and women at Multnomah University continue to be transformed in their faith as they trust God rather than allow the ways of the world to sway them.

Our commitment to Multnomah’s core values and goals remains undaunted. Our mission of equipping Christian students to be biblically competent, academically proficient, spiritually formed, and culturally engaged servant leaders, shaped to be a transforming force in their community and world remains stronger than ever.

I want to share just a few ways God continues to bless Multnomah. Our undergraduate enrollment is up by 11 percent. Our new biology program is drawing more students. Giving continues to increase. Our donor base is expanding. More alumni around the country are engaging us through our new smart phone app. Our annual audit was clear and positive, reflecting wise management and stewardship of the resources God entrusted us with.

It’s because of faithful givers like you who give so sacrificially and generously with what God has entrusted to you that we can fulfill the mission of Multnomah. I am deeply grateful for your gifts to assist our students so they can afford to attend Multnomah.

Thank you for remembering Multnomah in your year-end giving. On behalf of our students, faculty and staff, may you be richly blessed this Christmas season!

Growing in generosity,

Craig

Rev. G. Craig Williford, Ph.D.
President

New biology professor integrates faith and science

For the true scientist, faith is something that must be simultaneously held at arm’s length and embraced. Being in a field where knowledge is tested, retested and tested again forces the scientist to stand at a certain distance from what he or she knows. Some scientists who are perched in that place see faith as a distraction, or at worst a limitation. Some, however, see their faith as precisely the force that gives them courage to delve fearlessly into the mysteries of life. Dr. Sarah Gall, chair of the biology department at MU, is this latter type of scientist. Read the rest of this entry »
