Christian Higher Education Canada is pleased to announce our first
Symposium on Christian Higher Education to be held in Toronto, Ontario,
tentatively scheduled for October 26-27, 2018. 
We invite paper abstract submissions until September 1, 2017.


This Symposium invites papers reflecting on the theme: The Development of Christian Higher Education in Canada

Papers should be related to our theme on the development, impact, and future of Christian higher education in Canada.  Possible topics may address:

  • factors that have shaped the development of Christian higher education in Canada;
  • contributions Christian higher education has made to the Christian community and wider society;
  • challenges and responses to them needed to remain relevant to church and society going forward.

Given the symposium’s theme on the development, impact, and future of Christian higher education in Canada, most papers are expected to approach the subject from an historical, theological, sociological, political, pedagogical or cultural/philosophical viewpoint.


Until September 1, 2017, we will accept online submissions in response to the Call for Papers.  Abstracts should include a tentative title and abstract no longer than 300 words.  Click here to see the online submission form.

Abstracts will be subject to blind peer review by academics and practitioners listed in the Leadership section.

Papers and Presentation

Notice of acceptance for the Symposium will be sent no later than October 31, 2017. 

Papers should be 8,000 to 10,000 words in total.

A separate summary of the paper (roughly 1500 – 2000 words) will be presented in 15-20 minutes at the Symposium in Toronto, tentatively scheduled for October 26-27, 2018, with a brief question and answer session to follow each presentation.

Style Guide for Publication

The edited volume will use the style guide of the publisher that is selected, therefore, papers should be submitted using this format for ease of editing and publication.  TBD
