Center for Vocational Reflection
Add your name to the list???
Tradition has it that on October 31, 1517 Martin Luther posted Ninety-Five Theses on the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg. Thus began a long tradition of Lutherans taking public positions on issues as a way of sparking debate—and even reformation.
In the September 2007 issue of Acknowledge, Pres. Bahls made the comment:
Now, in this new year, I’d like to suggest that we all be more intentional about the deeper questions of vocation. Who are we as a community of learners, teachers and fellow travelers? How does the mission of the college inform the way we do our work and the manner in which we relate to one another?
As a response to this call and in the tradition of public conversations, the Center for Vocational Reflection has been hosting a series of conversations on the topic of “The Values of Augustana.” These are short presentations by faculty and staff exploring a value (or set of values) of Augustana and examining the implications of those values for Augustana at this point in our story. The CVR will provide the venue (south end of the library—until we outgrow the space), the snacks (coffee and the usual CVR goodies), and a small stipend for those who present their thoughts ($100—for a good book or two).
If you would like to present your ideas for conversation, contact Bob Haak in the CVR.
What is Your Story
Your story and who you are contribute to Augustana and become part of the larger story of this community. In conjunction with the Year of the Book Time Capsule Book, the Center for Vocational Reflection invites you to tell your story. Join us at the South End of the library on Wednesday, March 26 anytime between 10am-7pm to create a page for the time capsule book. We will provide the pages, art supplies, and writing instruments: the story is up to you
