Announcement: "Understanding Gustavus: Exploring Its Lutheran Identity" with Darrell Jodock in 3 sessions


Gustavus' guiding vision has been shaped by its Lutheran tradition. Following a "third path," this vision does not follow "default" models and is out of step with several societal expectations. As a result, the College's core vision can be puzzling and hard to articulate. Dr. Darrell Jodock will give a series of presentations designed for faculty, administrators and staff of all backgrounds, who make decisions and/or influence students. The sessions during lunch will explore one basic characteristic of the Lutheran heritage and its influence on Gustavus -- the features being RELATIONAL, CAUTIOUS, and PURPOSEFUL. Participants may attend one session or the series, on each date come on Tuesdays Feb. 28, March 6, and March 13 at either 11:30 or 12:30 (repeat presentations) with short discussion following. Participants pick up a free lunch at the buffet and bring it to the President's Dining Room.
