The purpose of Dimensions is to nurture students spiritually, intellectually, and culturally from the perspective of a Christian world view and to promote a sense of community. Consequently, the three primary objectives of the Dimensions program are:
- To provide opportunities for spiritual growth through worship and programs of a religious nature, all in the context of Gardner-Webb University’s strong commitment to the Christian faith,
- To enhance the academic program of the University by providing opportunities for intellectual and cultural enrichment,
- To promote a sense of community by regularly bringing together students, faculty, staff, and friends of the University.
As a full-time undergraduate student at GWU you’ll be required to attend 10 Dimensions programs a semester for six semesters (or until three credit hours have been fulfilled). Part-time students must earn a half-credit hour (one semester) for every 15 hours of credits earned until three credit hours have been fulfilled.
Dimensions is held on Tuesdays at 9:25am in the Lutz-Yelton Convocation Center (LYCC) unless otherwise noted.
Students enrolled in Dimensions swipe their ID cards upon entering the program. Students are not permitted to swipe the card of someone else, and students arriving after 9:30am will not receive credit for that program. Students who leave Dimensions prior to the conclusion of the program will be charged with academic dishonesty and will receive an F for the semester.
Students are expected to treat speakers with the utmost respect and courtesy. Appropriate dress and behavior are expected. The use of iPods/earphones, cell phones, laptops, iPads, and other electronic devices are not permitted. Students who fail to comply with the expected appropriate behavior will result in the loss of credit for that program’s attendance.
Current students enrolled in Tuesday Dimensions can check their attendance through the Webb Connect portal. Any questions or discrepancies should be discussed with Teresa Davis at (704) 406-4277, firstname.lastname@example.org, or in Tucker Student Center 231.
