Administrators Workshop


From Mission to Meaningful Lives:

Student Success in Church-Related Higher Education

The Fifteenth Annual Workshop for Senior Administrators

Xavier University of Louisiana

New Orleans, LA

September 25-26, 2014


 

The LFP sponsors an annual Workshop for Senior Administrators of Network institutions.  These workshops are arranged within the National Network and are offered at no cost to senior administrators at Lilly Fellows Program National Network member institutions.  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 participant from each school will be reimbursed for travel costs up to $600.  Meals and hotel accommodations will also be paid by the Lilly Fellows Program in Humanities and the Arts. 

The theme of this year's workshop, From Mission to Meaningful Lives: Student Success in Church-Related Higher Education, examined how mission provides resources for church-related institutions of higher learning to define and to promote post baccalaureate success. Specifically, the workshop sought to 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?
