Spring 2023 Faculty Discussion Group
Liberal Arts, Now: Reflective Vocational Exploration Workshops
— with support from the Network for Vocation in Undergraduate Education (NetVUE)
The last few years have brought a myriad of challenges to liberal arts educators.
- How do we understand our vocational orientation at our present cultural moment?
- How do we navigate liberal arts, now?
During January 2023, Eckerd College faculty colleagues connected over a shared commitment to undergraduate liberal arts education. A series of reflective workshop mini-sessions surfaced issues related to our work as liberal arts educators and how we might share a sense of vocation and purpose within our learning community.
Faculty participants received a stipend of $1000 for all four sessions and were eligible for vocational seed grants to work on a liberal arts project of their own choice and design during Spring and Fall 2023.
