DBU Doctoral Students Tour Holy Land
Dallas Baptist University took 26 doctoral students from the Cook School of Leadership to participate in a nine day academic seminar in the Holy Land.
The seminar provided students with the opportunity discuss classical and current leadership theories in the setting of a heavily pluralistic context as Israel is home to the three predominant monotheistic religions of the world: Judaism, Islam, and Christianity.
“The DBU Israel Doctoral Institute was the most inspiring intellectual and spiritual experience I have ever been privileged to lead,” said Dr. Adam Wright, Vice President and Dean of the Cook School of Leadership at DBU. “I am so very thankful for the Christian leadership of our DBU president and the vision he cast for such an opportunity. As our students develop as Christian scholars, servant leaders and global thinkers, I can fathom no better global experience than traveling to the Holy Land. Walking in the steps of Jesus as students learn from His example and the leadership He continues to demonstrate has truly made an impression in our students’ lives that they will never forget.”
The group was able to visit historic sites in Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Nazareth, Caesarea-Philippi, the Galilea, and the Qumran region. They are pictured below in the Garden of Gethsemane.
While in Nazareth, the group met with Botrus Mansour, general director of the Nazareth Baptist School, and had a chance to interact with officials, faculty, and staff from the school.
The Cook School of Leadership at DBU offers a Ph.D. in Leadership studies degree and a Ed.D. in Educational Leadership degree, as well as a Master of Education in Higher Education. Students in these programs are professionals in business, healthcare, civil service law, education, and Christian ministry. Students within the School of Leadership are also afforded opportunities to study in Washington, D.C. and Oxford, England.
