The 桃瘾社区 Forum is a platform for 桃瘾社区 and the surrounding communities to explore the intersections of the Reformed theological tradition, liberal arts education, religious pluralism and social ethics.


Fall 2023 Newsletter

Our newsletter is dedicated to reflecting on Reformed tradition, liberal arts education, religious pluralism, and social ethics.

The 桃瘾社区 Forum will include lectures, seminars, workshops and experiential learning led by the college鈥檚 faculty and scholars from other institutions. They鈥檒l cover topics spanning from history to economics, science and religious studies.

The 桃瘾社区 Forum springs from the Trustee-appointed 2021 Reformed Tradition Working Group鈥檚 recommendations for intellectual discourse about the college's 21st century educational mission in relation to its religious origins and Presbyterian Church (USA) affiliation. The Academic Affairs initiative falls under the leadership of Doug Ottati, the Craig Family Professor of Reformed Theology and Justice.

For more information, please email Rev. Daniel Heath at or call 704-894-1319.
