Dr. Jamal·Dominique Hopkins, dean of the Allen University Dickerson-Green Seminary, was selected as a Christ and Being Human Pedagogy Fellow at Yale University's Center for Faith and Culture.
As a fellow, Hopkins will join a team focused on evaluating, developing and proliferating coursework that deepens engagement with Christ across institutions of Christian higher education. In addition, Christ and Being Human Pedagogy Fellows will advise, oversee course evaluation and market research, and implement their own course for teaching at their institution.
Fellows will consist of eight educators drawn from Christian institutions of higher education to oversee and participate in research and outreach project phases.
"I am honored to be part of Yale University's Center for Faith and Culture in addressing the nature and importance of revitalizing Christian higher education," said Hopkins. "This work is vital in our current social-cultural climate. I feel a deep sense of responsibility in helping to shape and evaluate curriculum that not only assists fellow academicians in effective Christian pedagogical development, but also addresses and prepares generations of leaders to be morally and ethically engaged."
Hopkins, who also serves as associate professor of Biblical Languages and Literature, has been employed at Allen since 2019. He received a doctorate degree in Religions and Theology from the University of Manchester in England, a Master of Arts degree from Fuller Theological Seminary, and a Bachelor of Arts degree from Howard University.
