About

Launched in 2013 as part of the NetVUE Scholarly Resources Project, Vocation Matters is a public service of the Network for Vocation in Undergraduate Education (NetVUE), which is administered by the Council of Independent Colleges with generous support from Lilly Endowment Inc. Many of the posts here are authored by scholars who contributed essays to the first three volumes produced by the Scholarly Resources Project, published by Oxford University Press: At This Time and In This Place: Vocation and Higher Education (2016); Vocation across the Academy: A New Vocabulary for Higher Education (2017); and Hearing Vocation Differently: Meaning, Purpose, and Identity in the Multi-Faith Academy (2019). Other contributors to the Vocation Matters blog include faculty members and staff who are involved in vocation-related teaching, co-curricular projects, or other programming at NetVUE member institutions. We hope that you will visit this site often—and that you will read, consider, and comment on whatever you find here. We are eager for you to join this conversation.
