LeTourneau University Assistant Professor Paul Rickert, who teaches in LETU’s criminal justice program, has been awarded a scholarship from the Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty to attend a four-day conference in Grand Rapids, Mich.
The conference focuses largely on how the Judeo-Christian worldview benefits not only American society and culture, but humanity as a whole, specifically through advocating and educating on the nature and role of free-market principles. Leading authorities on economics, theology, public policy, globalization, the environment and other disciplines will teach the multidisciplinary classes.
Rickert’s coursework will include a variety of themes which will inform his perspective on criminal justice, which is a multidisciplinary academic area. Rickert is also a sworn officer of the LeTourneau University Police Department.
