I am developing and leading an exciting new venture at Wabash College, Callings: Exploring Vocational Identity and Purpose. Callings is part of the Network for Vocation in Undergraduate Education (NetVUE), a Lilly Endowment funded program run under the aegis of the Council of Independent Colleges. With around 170 member colleges and universities, NetVUE aims to promote exploration of the concept of vocation or calling among students, drawing upon both theological and secular traditions. Through a variety of programs - a mentoring community, campus speakers, externships and internships, and more - Callings will help students contemplate the ways their interests, gifts, and passions intersect with the needs of society and the larger world. I am convinced that the education we offer students will be significantly enhanced by a concerted focus on vocation, providing them with more clarity and direction as they embark on their careers. This represents an outstanding new development in my career, one that builds on prior commitments but redirects them into fresh fields of endeavor. The proposed project will support study time to enhance my knowledge of vocation, develop a new course, and connect with interested parties both on and off campus. It will provide a strong foundation for my future teaching, research, and leadership in this area. This new emphasis on vocation is well suited to both our diverse student body at Wabash and my interests as a practicing Christian who is committed to helping students grow spiritually and integrate faith and learning.
