Representing a spectrum of denominational backgrounds, a group of Christian academics at the University of Florida desired to see a center introduced to the university community, which would cultivate an on-going conversation about how the Christian tradition might contribute to cultural and human questions that arise within the academic disciplines. The Center was launched in 2000 and was under the leadership of Director Richard Horner a year later. The Study Center seeks to explore the intersection of Christian thought and academic discourse.

The University of Florida is a public, land-grant, sea-grant and space-grant research university, one of the most comprehensive in the United States, encompassing virtually all academic and professional disciplines. It is the mission of the University of Florida to offer broad-based, exclusive public education, leading-edge research and service to the citizens of Florida, the nation and the world. The fusion of these three endeavors stimulates a remarkable intellectual vitality and generates a synthesis that promises to be the university’s greatest strength.
