This study used a qualitative approach to assess the current challenges facing six colleges and universities affiliated with Christian churches (independent) associated with the Stone-Campbell Movement. The chief academic officers (CAOs) for these schools were interviewed to determine the greatest market challenges facing their schools, how they were meeting these challenges, and the impact these challenges were having on the Bible and ministry programs at their schools.
