Crossroads is a MidAmerica Nazarene University (MNU) research publication dedicated to sharing research and insights from MNU faculty and students.

Mabee Library publishes Crossroads twice annually in digital format. Our goal is to provide information, inspiration, and insight into the world of research and scholarship at the MidAmerica University, and to share ideas that will impact our world.

Why the name, "Crossroads?" MidAmerica Nazarene University is centered in Olathe, Kansas, which served as a historical waystation and crossroads for the California, Oregon, and Santa Fe trails. We also use the title "Crossroads" to describe the intersection of researchers, instructors, students, alumni, and the lay person interested in the various topics described in the publication.
