Vocational Explorations in a Multi-Faith World:
Cultivating Informed Engagement across Faith Traditions in Undergraduate Education
A NetVUE gathering at Calvin College
September 20-21, 2013
This conference will take as its starting point the assumption that the majority of students on our campuses are either Christians or have been influenced by a Christian culture. It will, therefore, focus on helping students, faculty, staff, and administrators who are formed in a Christian cultural milieu to better understand how to interact well with those who come from other faith traditions. It will look at ways to form an institutional culture of thoughtful theological engagement and civil conversations that honors others’ faith commitments while upholding students’ own Christian traditions. Done effectively, this kind of engagement will develop through campus life, classroom curriculum, and off-campus study, as well as endure post-graduation.
Cosponsored by IAPCHE, the CCCS, and NetVUE.
