A heads-up for all my Orthodox academic friends…

The Orthodox Scholars Initiative Database is up and running. Seems like a good thing to be part of — although, having just seen X-Men: First Class, the line “Identification is the first step” is still somewhat fresh in the ears… Anyway. If you’re worried about it being Orthodox LinkedIn for scholars, that doesn’t seem to be the point, thank goodness:

This database is designed to help build connections among Orthodox Christian faculty/researchers of all disciplines and specialties. In addition, it allows students, lay leaders, and clergy to register in order to discover these Orthodox Christian faculty/researchers and consult them as potential lecturers, researchers, mentors, etc.

Database interests of faculty/researchers may include, for example:

  • Collaboration with Faculty
  • Collaboration with Students
  • Mentoring of Students
  • Giving Lectures and Workshops
  • Becoming Involved with Local Chapters of Orthodox Christian Fellowship (OCF)
  • Field-Related Conferences
  • Disciplinary Networking
  • Looking for someone who is doing similar research

Registered users may choose from a range of privacy options, controlling which user groups can see profile information.

The database is born out of the work of the Office of Vocation & Ministry at Hellenic College, which sees the need on local, regional, and national levels for Orthodox faculty to be involved in the life and ministry of the Orthodox Church in the United States. We pray it will bear much fruit.
