La Sierra Faculty Backs Colleagues Criticized for Teaching Evolution

February 2, 2010

La Sierra University's Faculty Senate has unanimously adopted a resolution defending the biology department at the Seventh-day Adventist university, which is being criticized by some for teaching evolution. The text of the resolution appears in The Adventist. The resolution notes that "certain off-campus persons" have tried "to dictate" the contents of the science curriculum. The resolution says that the faculty leaders affirm "our commitment to the preservation of academic freedom with intellectual and moral integrity in the context of our heritage, and service as a Seventh-day Adventist Christian University."
