If HR sees Liberty University on a resume and looks it up to find out that it is a Christian school founded by the much derided ultraconservative Jerry Falwell -- could that be toxic? Obviously, conservative Christians and perhaps moderate Christians would have no problem with it but what about liberals and those of other faiths or no faith? There's many esteemed Christian-based universities (ie. Notre Dame) who don't suffer from reputation issues. However, these schools don't typically have headlines like this: Liberty University disputing evolution | The News & Advance Creationist Students Take Trip to Evolution Headquarters: The Smithsonian - washingtonpost.com They teach evolution at Notre Dame and don't make Creationism a required course. So, what do you think? Is a degree from a school like Liberty University toxic? Would it be worth shopping elsewhere if you don't plan to work in the Bible belt or in conservative areas?
