Research Projects

Avondale University’s research centres seek to give us a better understanding of Christian education, health and lifestyle, teaching and learning and spirituality and worship. Giving to the centres helps: fund new projects; support employment of research assistants, and; improve information technology to build capacity for data processing and train more research supervisors.
