2014 Workshop for Senior Administrators


The Lilly Fellows Program in Humanities and the Arts presents:


The Fifteenth Annual Workshop for Senior Administrators


From Mission to Meaningful Lives:

Student Success in Church-Related Higher Education

September 25-26, 2014

Xavier University of Louisiana

New Orleans, Louisiana

                         
                         
           

Patricia O’Connell Killen
Academic Vice President
Gonzaga University
Spokane, Washington
         

Bobby Fong
President
Ursinus College
Collegeville, Pennsylvania

From Mission to Meaningful Lives:  Student Success in Church-Related Higher Education will examine how mission provides resources for church-related institutions of higher learning to define and to promote post baccalaureate success. Specifically, the workshop will address such questions as:

  • How should church-related institutions define post baccalaureate success and communicate that definition to key constituencies including boards, regulatory bodies, students, and parents?
  • How can church-related institutions promote learning that has both intrinsic value and that is also instrumental in leading to post baccalaureate success?
  • What theological perspectives on work and vocation inform church-related institutions’ strategic planning with regard to post baccalaureate success?
  • How does the curriculum and co-curriculum connect to the work of career and student services to promote post baccalaureate success?  How can different campus units coordinate their efforts to ensure post baccalaureate success?
  • What promises does our institution make to students, parents, and regulators, and who on campus insures those promises are kept?
  • How should mission guide the allocation of resources for student success after graduation?

Each institution is eligible to register one senior administrator (president, vice president, academic dean, provost, or equivalent) or, given the topic, a relevant administrator or faculty member. One academic administrator from an LFP Network school may attend the Workshop for Senior Administrators at no cost. Accommodations, meals, and travel reimbursements of up to $600 will be provided for those who register by registration deadline. Space is limited; additional participants from member schools will be placed on a waiting list until registration closes and will be enrolled as slots become available after that date.  Registration closes on September 10, 2014.
