Inside Gustavus (October 17, 2012)
Volume 45, Number 7
Dr. Chris Johnson (Vocation and Integrative Learning, Center for Servant Leadership) led a day-long workshop and retreat Sept. 29 for faculty, staff, administrators, and students at Nebraska Wesleyan University in Lincoln, Nebraska. The focus of the day -- titled "Teaching and Learning that Matters: Courage, Calling, and other Alternatives to 'Normal'" -- was on creating a campus-wide ethos of vocational reflection as a foundation for deepening the university's civic mission. The visit was connected with the American Association of Colleges and University's "Bringing Theory to Practice" initiative, and Gustavus's leading involvement in the Council of Independent College's "NetVUE" program (Network on Vocation in Undergraduate Education).
