At SEARCH, we believe that God calls us to use our intellectual potential to wonder, think and build together in a shared journey of discovery and understanding.
Through year-round events, programs and creative forms of research and scholarship, we promote learning across the liberal arts disciplines to advance knowledge and celebrate the mind as a reflection of our calling as divine image-bearers.
As Asbury’s hub for imaginative intellectual activity, we invite you to join us in learning, growing and discovering together within the Christian experience.
SEARCH is designed for discovery because you are designed for discovery.
SEARCH invites every member of the Asbury community to ask bold questions that propel us on a path toward discovery. We live in the midst of intellectual pursuit, finding value in the journey of questioning, study and collaborative exchange. Our approach to programming thrives in the context of our Christian faith, empowered by a God who takes joy in our wonder. We invite you to discover the ways Asbury’s faculty and undergraduates shape and refine our understanding of ourselves, our world and our Creator through ongoing research and creative activity.
At SEARCH, we nurture relationships of mutual intellectual exploration and growth across our community. We are especially interested in collaborations that engage and gather faculty and students from across the humanities and sciences. We also partner with parties beyond the academic community, offering funding for diverse and collaborative, new and emerging forms of scholarship. Join us in learning more about partnerships among students and faculty, campus and community.
At the heart of SEARCH is our conviction that discovery happens through all forms of learning. We discover through stories, paint strokes, drumbeats and pirouettes. We discover through science and art and technology and culture. We discover through diligent study, spirited debate, spontaneous laughter and quiet reflections of the heart. And we use these discoveries in service of God’s kingdom.
