Date: July 22, 2013 - July 24, 2013
Time: All Day
Location: Augsburg College
The 19th annual Vocation of a Lutheran College Conference will convene at Augsburg College in Minneapolis. The theme of this year’s conference is “Vocation: A Challenge to the Commodification of Education.” We will explore the uniqueness and value of education for/as vocation in a climate where profitability, careerism, and the commodification of education increasingly dictate expectations of students, pedagogical practices, and institutional decisions. We will also offer opportunities for participants to orient themselves to the idea of “the vocation of a Lutheran college” if they are new to this ongoing conversation.
