Luther becomes founding member of NetVUE vocation networking site

Feb. 15, 2010

Luther College has joined a new vocation networking site, NetVUE, as one of about 125 founding members.

The Network for Vocation in Undergraduate Education (NetVUE) fosters the exploration of vocation in college and university campus communities. This new initiative, which is being administered by the Council of Independent Colleges with support from Lilly Endowment Inc., was launched at the Vocation in Undergraduate Education Conference in March 2009.

The goal of NetVUE is to provide a nationwide campus-supported network to expand and extend the conversation about vocational exploration.

Luther College is now able to share information, network, and collaborate with other participating colleges across the nation with NetVUE’s full-scale online community network.

NetVUE will support and enhance Luther College’s Sense of Vocation program, a multi-year program established in 2002 through the generosity of the Lilly Endowment's “Programs for the Theological Exploration of Vocation.”

Luther’s sense of vocation projects support wide-ranging campus initiatives that integrate the concept of vocation more fully into the intellectual and residential life of the college.

The primary goal of Luther’s Sense of Vocation program has been to equip students to respond to their callings and to live lives centered in their faith and values.   

The program includes major initiatives in advising and curriculum to deepen the sense of vocation held by all students, regardless of their professional goals. Its vocation events and programs are offered to all Luther students at major junctures of their college career.
