Dr. Kuipers is the author of several books, including Critical Faith: Toward a Renewed Understanding of Religious Life and its Public Accountability (Rodopi, 2002) and Richard Rorty (Bloomsbury, 2013). Learn more about Dr. Kuipers and his work on his faculty page.
The Senate, which meets twice yearly, includes internal and external members. The latter, supportive of the mission of ICS, bring to bear the wisdom of scholars whose experience in other institutions, both public and private, makes them well placed to offer counsel and provide direction to the institute's academic programs.
Members of the Board of Trustees represent different geographic regions across Canada and the USA and support the mission of ICS.
