About ESN

Grad School Your Mission 1Connecting with ESN has really enriched my experience at Urbana because it expanded my mind to see that God called me into the engineering field for a reason. Missions and academic/vocational pursuit are not two separate ideas, but rather beautifully intertwined to fulfill a piece of God’s bigger story for my generation.

What Is the Emerging Scholars Network (ESN)?

The Emerging Scholars Network (ESN) is a national network within InterVarsity’s Graduate & Faculty Ministries which supports those on the academic pathway as they work out how their academic vocation serves God and others. We encourage and equip undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs, and early career faculty as they navigate each stage of their academic vocation and transition to the next step in or beyond the academy.

What Does ESN Do?

ESN supports Christians with an academic vocation through:

  • An ongoing blog
  • Opportunities to connect with peers and mentor figures online and at conferences
  • Partnerships with InterVarsity campus fellowships and conferencing
  • Partnerships with other likeminded organizations such as the American Scientific Affiliation (ASA)

ESN does this by:

  • Building/encouraging/publicizing networks of Christians within academic fields
  • Connecting students in transition to InterVarsity events/campus groups and other resources
  • Producing material to support groups and individuals exploring their academic vocation and sharing it on our blog
  • Providing emerging scholars opportunities to connect with peers and mentor figures online and at conferences
  • Providing emerging scholars training and opportunities to grow as public intellectuals and bless the church and the world through blogging and speaking opportunities
  • Engaging InterVarsity alumni with a desire to serve emerging scholars

More information is available on our main website, including why to join, how to join, and various resources for emerging Christian scholars. Click here for our Week in Review, which includes material we explore on the blog, Facebook and Twitter. If available on our campus, don’t miss the opportunity to become a part of an InterVarsity campus fellowship.

ESN Announce

The Emerging Scholars Network is always seeking opportunities to identify, encourage, and equip the next generation of Christian scholars to be a redeeming influence in the academy, church, and the world. As you have an announcement, a "call for papers", an event, a prayer request (e.g., campus, field, higher ed), a resource suggestion, a review, etc., which is in concord with our Kingdom of God endeavor, please send materials (marketing/sales material not accepted) for consideration to post via email or the ESN Writer Survey. Thank-you. To God be the glory! ~ Thomas B. Grosh IV, Associate Director, Emerging Scholars Network
