Shirley Roels







Shirley Roels

Office: Raybrook 204

Dr. Shirley Roels began teaching management and accounting courses at Calvin College in 1979. Since then she has written several works on business ethics, served as an academic dean, and worked as the Director of the Calvin College Lilly Vocation Project. That project planted some of the seeds that have resulted in the Congregational and Ministry Studies Department because of its emphasis on Christian calling to life and leadership in the church as well as other paid employment.

In June 2010 she directed the Calvin College conference "Reformed Mission in an Age of World Christianity." Recently she concluded service as Director of the Van Lunen Center for Executive Management in Christian Schools to provide full-time leadership of the Network for Vocation in Undergraduate Education (NetVUE), an initiative of the Council of Independent Colleges.
