Tracking Student Chapel & Spiritual Development with Presence

Thursday, October 21 @ 2:00 pm EST

About this webinar

For many religious universities and colleges throughout the US, chapel services are critical to the institutional mission. The time that students, faculty, and staff spend together in prayer and religious devotion is key to promoting each person’s spiritual growth — a growth that these institutions prioritize equally with academic learning. Thus, chapel isn’t an extra-curricular activity; it’s part of the curriculum.

Up until now, tracking that religious activity and spiritual development on campus has been achieved with paper-based forms or even anecdotal evidence. Join David Reyes, Dean of Spiritual Life at Dallas Baptist University (DBU) as he showcases how DBU introduced scalable technology to track student attendance at chapel and even provided virtual chapel during the pandemic.
