Chemistry & Biochemistry Departmental Seminar Series

How can you tell if something is acidic or basic? How can you track a toxic substance or diseased tissues inside your body? Scientists often use molecules as probes to see (detect, sense) an environment (cell, protein, reaction, etc) that they otherwise could not 'see'. The color changes of pH paper or the green fluorescent protein all allow us to probe the environment at the molecular level. These techniques are at the heart of microscopy and medical diagnostics. It allows us to detect pathogens, diseases and toxic substances.

The Theology of Ordination Study Committee:
One Member’s Observations and Reflections


Presented by

Cheryl Doss PhD
Director of the Institute of World Mission
Member, Theology of Ordination Study Committee

Sabbath Afternoon, September 20, 2014
3:30 pm

Chan Shun Hall
Andrews University



About the Topic

Currently, the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, the SDA denomination’s highest administrative authority, does not endorse the ordination of women as ministers.

During the past two years the Theology of Ordination Study Committee appointed by the General Conference has been studying issues related to the ordination of women as ministers in the SDA church. The committee recently made its report as part of a process which is expected to lead to discussion and possible revision of the denomination’s practice of not endorsing the ordination of women as ministers when the church holds its next world-wide General Conference Session in 2015.

Cheryl Doss, a member of the committee and director of the denomination’s Institute of World Mission, will discuss personal observations and reflections growing out of her work on the committee.

About the Speaker

Cheryl Doss, PhD, is the director of the Institute of World Mission, a service of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists that serves the world church.  The Institute facilitates the cross-cultural outreach of the Seventh-day Adventist world church. It provides cross-cultural training for full-time, short-term and volunteer workers, and facilitates their re-entry to the home field.
Cheryl’s mission experience began as an MK (missionary kid) living in South Africa.  Later, with her husband Gorden (also an MK and now a teacher of mission at Andrews University), she served for sixteen years in the country of Malawi.

During her years in Malawi, Cheryl directed rural clinics, developed training programs for pastors’ wives, facilitated women’s ministries programs, and helped start Shepherdess Clubs.  She also home schooled her two children, Kristi and Richard, and taught classes in the ministerial training program at Lakeview Seminary.  As a nurse she lectured on health and, along with her husband, initiated annual family life training seminars for pastors and their wives.  Their book, Christian Marriage, was published in Malawi in 1995.

Combining her mission background and educational training with her passion for family growth, Cheryl’s research and writing has largely focused on families in cross-cultural transition.  Besides teaching and administrative duties, her specific responsibilities at the Institute of World Mission are developing curriculum and resources for mission training, and the support and education of missionary families through newsletters and re-entry programs.

Since leaving Africa in 1997, Cheryl and Gorden have made their home at Andrews University and are blessed to have their two remaining parents living nearby.  Kristi and her family are on the faculty at the Adventist International Institute of Advanced Studies in the Philippines.  Richard and his family are serving at Nile Union Academy in Egypt.

AICER Presents Dr. Christon Arthur

The Andrews International Center for Educational Research (AICER) is inviting faculty, students and interested individuals to attend a presentation on September 02, 2013, at 5:30 pm.

Presenter:  Dr. Christon Arthur, Dean, School of Graduate Studies and Research; Associate Provost, Faculty Development, Andrews University

Ways of Knowing: Using Research to Inform Theory & Practice  

Humans are constantly making decisions. The quality of our life is inextricably linked to the decisions that we make. It goes without saying that the best decisions are usually Informed-decisions - decisions that are knowledge-based. But, how do we acquire that knowledge? How do we “come to know?” It is true that epistemology is concerned with what knowledge is most important; but how do we acquire or “come to know?” Is empiricism at odds with revelation? Can one know that which is not “testable” or “observable?” Is there such a thing as “objective reality?”

Venue:  Bell Hall, Room 013

Online participants to login as "Guest" at   https://andrews.adobeconnect.com/_a877709416/research/ or  http://www.andrews.edu/sed/aicer/researchwebinars/  whether or not they are registered Andrews students.

Reminder: Faculty Mentors Needed

Dear Faculty,

From August 17-23 the Student Life office will be coordinating New Student Orientation week.

Our goal is to help students adjust to their new environment by placing them into Mentoring Groups. These groups are under the leadership of current students who serve as New Student Mentors.

We are seeking twenty faculty members who would serve as a Faculty Coaches for these groups.

Here is what that 4 1/2 hour commitment would entail.

1.     Meet on Wednesday, August 20, from 7:30-9 p.m., with the Mentoring Group.  The New Student Mentors will facilitate activities that help you get acquainted with the new students in your group.  There will also be time set aside for new students to ask you questions about how to succeed in the classroom.

2.     Meet three times throughout the first semester (Sept. 23, Oct. 28 and Nov. 18.) during the Tuesday co-curricular period, 11:30 am - 12:20 p.m.  These will be “check-in points” with our new students.  Again, the New Student Mentors will run the program.  Your role will simply be to come alongside and show a helpful interest in students’ experience and progress during their first semester.

Thank you for considering this important role during the first semester.  Our new students appreciate the support and interaction these Mentoring Groups provide, and we believe they make a real difference in student retention.

If you are interested in volunteering as a Faculty Coach, please contact the Student Activities Office  by email at cnelson@andrews.edu  by Friday, August 8th.

Thank you so much for your time and God bless!

AICER Presents Dr. Isadore Newman

Andrews International Center for Educational Research (AICER) presents: 

Dr. Isadore Newman,  Visiting Scholar, College of Education, Florida International University Adjunct Professor, and Professor Emeritus, The  Akron University, on Wednesday July 30, at 11:30 am.

Topic:  Considering the Purpose of Research When Identifying Quantitative and Qualitative Commonalities

A review of the methodological literature describing mixed-methods, quantitative and qualitative research paradigms suggest that though many have rejected the so-called paradigm wars there remains much focus on what is different about each research tradition. This presentation offers a conceptual discussion of a series of qualitative and quantitative research endeavors that share common underpinnings and purpose.  Dr. Newman will demonstrate several commonalities between approaches with the hope of encouraging readers to allow research questions to guide methodological choices and avoid overemphasizing division between research paradigms.  

Face-to-face participants meet in Bell Hall, Room 013. 

Online participants to login as "Guest" at  https://andrews.adobeconnect.com/_a877709416/research/   or  http://www.andrews.edu/sed/aicer/researchwebinars/  whether or not they are registered  at Andrews University
