The Upper House Fellows Program offers undergraduate and graduate students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison a unique community for intellectual and spiritual formation—a place to grow in theological understanding, connect Christian faith to academic study and vocation, and prepare for lives of leadership and service.
The Science, Technology & Faith track is limited to 12 students. We invite students who are interested in the STEM fields and questions regarding ethical issues surrounding science and technology. This track, anchored by Rachel Hutchinson, will host a variety of local and national experts as guest speakers.
Hear Rachel share more about the track in a one-minute video.
We will discuss science and technology as a calling, explore different ways in which science and faith can interact, and delve into topics including creation and evolution, genetics and human nature, and God’s role in nature.
We will focus on ethical questions and implications of science and technology. Specific topics will be tailored to the interests of the fellows and may include themes such as bioethics, artificial intelligence, environment and climate science, and science literacy.
