2016 LJC Institute Graduation Dinner Features Distinguished Christian Bioethicist

On May 27, 2016, a near-record 110 people attended an uplifting Law, Justice, and Culture Institute graduation dinner at Olivet Nazarene University which featured inspiring testimonials from three Law, Justice, and Culture Institute graduates — Johnathan Whiddon, of Texas A&M University; James Selvey, of the College of DuPage; and Travis Smith, an alumnus of Olivet Nazarene University. The evening’s keynote message was delivered by Dr. Morse Tan, professor of law at Northern Illinois University and a highly regarded scholar in human rights and bioethics. Dr. Tan, who also serves as Chairman of the Center’s Board, discussed the egregious human rights violations occurring in North Korea and what he called the greatest issue of our time — the sanctity of human life. Dr. Tan called for Christians to speak boldly to these issues as advocates for human dignity in a sinful world.

The Institute graduation dinner also featured the 2016 Christian Citizenship Award, which the Center presented to Olivet’s Administrative team for their unwavering support of the Olivet-Center partnership. Dr. Doug Perry, Olivet’s Chief Financial Officer, accepted the award on behalf of his Administrative Team colleagues.
