CVR Attends CIC Conference

Members of the CVR staff (and Jeff Abernathy) attended the Vocation in Undergraduate Education: Extending the Theological Exploration of Vocation conference held last week in Indianapolis. The goals of the gathering were to celebrate the schools (Like Augustana) that received Lilly Endowment grants and decide how we might relate to each other beyond the time when the Lilly Endowment continues its direct funding. We anticipate the formation of NetVUE/Network for Vocation in Undergraduate Education.
