BYU Scholar of Faith lecture series to feature Brent Slife Oct. 17

The Brigham Young University Faculty Center is hosting its next lecture in its “My Journey as a Scholar of Faith” series Thursday, Oct. 17, from 3 to 4 p.m. in B192 Joseph F. Smith Building. Brent Slife, professor of psychology, will speak at the session.  

Each session in the series features one or more scholars who have been thoughtful about the relationship between their religious faith and academic work. The primary audience for this series is BYU faculty members, but any interested students are welcome to attend. Admission is free.

Invited speakers will share their personal journey of understanding how currently faith and intellect work together in their personal and professional lives. Participants might be inspired by these journeys of faith and intellect to reflect on their own journeys.

Slife chairs the doctoral program in theoretical and philosophical psychology and serves as a member of the doctoral program in clinical psychology at BYU.
