Center for Vocational Reflection
Join the Conversation
Ever wonder what the role of religion should be on a liberal arts campus? Does ‘religion' seem like such a dangerous topic that you wouldn't think of raising it in the Wilson Center? Do you think that your ideas about religion ought to be kept off the campus—or that someone else's idea shouldn't be allowed?
If you have ever wondered about the role of religion on campus, you might be interested in taking a look at Religion on Our Campuses: A Professor's Guide to Communities, Conflicts, and Promising Conversations by Mark U. Edwards (Palgrave MacMillan, 2006). Mark Edwards is the former president of St. Olaf College and currently the Dean at Harvard Divinity School. This work is sponsored by the Program for the Theological Exploration of Vocation, the group that oversees schools that have received grants from the Lilly Endowment. You can take a look at the book in the CVR.
In addition, Mark Edwards will be participating in on-line web conversations on October 11th and 12th. You can view a short video with Mark Edwards at http://www.ptev.org/news.aspx?iid=68 Watch this page next week for details about how you could participate.
