Center for Vocational Reflection

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 10:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. 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.

“Here We Stand: The Values of Augustana”
April 17, 2008, 11:30 AM - Dan Corts
Add your name to the list???
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 .
