iNRB Student Members Study Abroad in Oxford, England

iNRB Students at OxfordA select group of iNRB student members recently concluded a two-week study abroad trip to Oxford, England, where they engaged in “one on one” tutorials with a distinguished scholar at Jesus College in the heart of Oxford University.

From June 28 to July 12, the six students who were selected for NRB’s Oxford Distinguished Scholar’s Program stayed at Jesus College (established 1571) and participated in Oxford method “one on one” tutorials (research and writing) with a distinguished scholar.

As part of the program, each student completed four essays in one of the following fields of study: communication, film, theology, ethics, or philosophy. They also learned about Reformation leaders and martyrs from Dr. Harold Rawlings, an expert on the history of the English Bible. In addition, the students had the opportunity to meet and spend time with NRB President & CEO Dr. Jerry A. Johnson and NRB Chairman of the Board Bill Blount, who joined them during their time in England.

Dr. Johnson, who was elected as NRB’s President & CEO last October, began the Oxford Distinguished Scholar’s Program while he was serving as Dean of Boyce College and later as President of Criswell College in Dallas, TX. During the NRB Convention earlier this year, Dr. Johnson announced his desire to transition the program to benefit student members of the Intercollegiate NRB (iNRB).

“iNRB is NRB’s future,” Dr. Johnson expressed. “We want to encourage and equip these prospective Christian media leaders and professionals. They’ll be the ones who will drive our industry forward and impact generations to come.”

The six students who were selected for this year’s program were Matthew Abeler (University of Northwestern-St. Paul), Emily Gissendanner (North Greenville University), Mark Klein (Louisiana College), Dawn Mellinger (Bob Jones University), Joshua Mulvaney (North Greenville University), and Miranda Quartemont (Louisiana College).
