Human Flourishing and Ideas that Inspire.

Jack Reimer and Dwight Friesen discuss Foundations 102 HUMAN FLOURISHING and Foundations 210 IDEAS THAT INSPIRE courses at Trinity Western University.

Ever wonder how a course you’re taking now will help you in the future? You aren’t the only one. Plus, there’s good news. Foundations courses will help you envision how a Christian liberal arts education from Trinity Western sets you up for success—not just in your career but in life. Think of it like the map on your phone. It shows you your destination—and how to get there.

Jack Reimer joined TWU in the School of Human Kinetics in 1985, then called the department of Physical Education.   Jack has recently resumed the role as coordinator of the leadership program in the School of Human Kinetics.  In this role he supervises all leadership experiences and internships in human kinetics.  TWU has recently completed a review of the liberal arts program which has led to significant changes in the role of the School of Human Kinetics in the core program. Out of this review a new interdisciplinary course in “Human Flourishing” has emerged and Jack has taken leadership in the development and implementation from the human kinetics perspective. 

Dwight Friesen is a Sessional Assistant Professor of Foundations Core at Trinity Western University. He holds a Ph.D. in Theological Ethics from University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom and a M.A., Theological Studies from Briercrest Seminary in Caronport, Saskatchewan, Canada. His background in graphic design and photography inform his cross-disciplinary interests in media, technology and culture and their tangled relationship with the way we live as human beings.
