UW Faculty and Staff Christian Fellowship


Banner image: Frieze on Education Building, Bascom Hill


In-person fellowship gatherings are suspended indefinitely due to University COVID-19 policies. We will post and promote new online events and, Lord willing, in-person events as the campus reopens. In the meantime, we hope you will keep praying for and supporting one other.

Our format for Zoom sessions is a 15-minute talk, followed by small group interaction and whole group discussion. We intend these get togethers to be encouraging and challenging for you as we live out our callings here at the UW.

The sessions will not be recorded. Please wait for the moderator to let you in to each session.

Francis Su writes about the dignity of human beings and the wonder of mathematical teaching. He is the Benediktsson-Karwa Professor of Mathematics at Harvey Mudd College and a former president of the Mathematical Association of America. In 2013, he received the Haimo Award, a nationwide teaching prize for college math faculty, and in 2018 he won the Halmos-Ford writing award for a speech that inspired his book Mathematics for Human Flourishing (2020).
