With this conviction, engineering professor David Wunder is committed to working alongside global communities to solve clean water challenges—and students across campus get to participate. In his words: "It's really healthy to have balance in terms of perspective, and how you view problems, and how you view communities and cultures. When we're working on projects where we have representation from across campus, we tend to see the bigger picture, a fuller picture of reality, and a better understanding of how best to intervene when called to. " Who’s up for the challenge?
One that hopefully lends itself to critical thinking, being a better person, a better citizen, a better Christian. " - Roman Williams, assistant professor of sociology

Calvin earns Tree Campus USA distinction dlvr.it/QJqTLG
In her words: "How do you think? How do you participate in a meeting? How do you go to church and listen to a sermon? All of those are things you can learn in a classroom, if you can learn how to think well and to listen well and then to engage with other people. So for me, what we do in the class is almost as important as what we learn in the class. Because one of the key things I want students to leave with is confidence that their feelings and ideas and approaches to things matter, and that we need to hear that. And once you think your own voice is important, the whole world changes. " #professorsofcalvincollege Visit the link in our profile for more Calvin stories!
That's where assistant professor of chemistry, Rachael Baker, comes in. She's one of the professors at Calvin studying rare diseases. Here's what she has to say: "Scientifically, rare diseases are really useful things. Because they're single changes to a complicated system, and you get to see what the effect is of this single change. You get to learn something about what the role of that protein was in the body, by changing it just a little bit. So there's a lot you can learn from rare diseases. But I think it's easy to get caught up in thinking, 'Oh this is really cool,' when you see this rare disease, and 'Look at all these things I can learn about the body. ' Professor Wilstermann and I taught a rare disease class over interim, and some of my research students were in that class. We were listening to stories of people who have rare diseases and have been deeply affected by them—this has shaped their whole lives and their whole experience. It was really cool in those moments to see my research students' perspectives really changing. Something just clicked, and they saw that there is utility in understanding these diseases, but when we're doing this, we're studying things that deeply affect people. It's led to really good conversations about what is our responsibility as Christian scientists, to not just think about the research that we're doing but the people that are being affected by the research.
