Trinity Professors Named Chicago Semester Scholars

Chicago Semester, an off-campus urban experiential education program that serves college students by equipping them to pursue their vocational callings and emerge as professionals as they faithfully engage the city, has announced scholars selected for their Summer 2023 Scholar-In-Residence program. Selected scholars include two Trinity Christian College professors, Lisa Doot Abinoja, Assist Professor of Social Work, and  Dr. Lenore Knight Johnson, Associate Professor of Sociology.

Scholars will join Chicago Semester and professors from other institutions for up to two weeks between June and July. They will live at Canterbury Court Apartments, the program’s housing partner, and have access to workspaces at 1871, where Chicago Semester’s offices are located. Each scholar is awarded a stipend to be used to further their research agendas while participating in the program.

The purpose of the Chicago Semester Scholar-In-Residence Program is to build relationships with faculty from our founding institutions by offering opportunities to nurture their research through resources available in Chicago. Chicago Semester was founded in 1974. The program currently serves approximately 100 students per year from 30+ partner institutions.
