ENGAGEMENT
'Faith and Politics' students take leadership in new directions
Students who completed Robert Franklin's "Faith and Politics" course last month knew they would get in-depth exposure to how politics and faith interact: They were required to volunteer for a campaign and write about how to heal a divided nation. What most didn't expect was that it would mark a turning point in understanding their call as leaders.
