2018 Scientist in Residence: Science as a Way of Knowing

2015
In a world of "alternative facts," what does science have to offer?

That's one of the questions Dr. Rick Lindroth will address when he visits Canadian Mennonite University January 29-30 as its 2018 Scientist in Residence.

Lindroth, a Vilas Distinguished Achievement Professor of Ecology and Associate Dean for Research at the University of Wisconsin (Madison, WI), will appear on campus to share his insights, observations, experience, and personal reflections during three speaking events open to the public.

The CMU community is excited to host Lindroth, says Dr. Tim Rogalsky, Associate Professor of Mathematics and Chair of the Science and Faith Advisory Committee.

"Can science be trusted? It might not be too strong to say that the fate of the world depends on how we answer that question," Rogalsky says. "As both Christian and scientist, Rick brings important insight to it. What is truth? What is knowledge? And to what extent can we trust science to help us find a way forward?"
