This summer Augsburg will again host the annual Vocation of Lutheran High Education Conference. Each year, members of Lutheran colleges and universities gather to explore the distinctive roles we play in higher education. The theme of the 2023 conference “So that we (faculty, staff, and administrators), too, may flourish” takes its name from Rooted and Open, where NECU institutions commit to serving students who are “called and empowered to serve the neighbor so that all may flourish.” In a time of staff and faculty burnout, resignations, and uneven degrees of belonging, we will consider how we educators, too, may flourish in mind, body and spirit.
Highlights include a keynote address by Jonathan Malesic, author of The End of Burnout: Why Work Drains Us and How to Build Better Lives; plenary sessions led by Deanna Thompson, Rev. Lamont Wells (NECU Executive Director), Krista Hughes, Monica Smith, Marc Jerry, and Jeremy Myers; small group conversations and workshops on the flourishing of faculty, administrators and staff; and guided VOCARE spiritual practices, led by Rev. Dr. Charlene Rachuy Cox.
The conference begins at 5:00 pm on Monday, July 10 and ends at 1:00 pm on Wednesday, July 12.
You may view the preliminary agenda and register for the conference at https://www.augsburg.edu/campusministry/2023/03/30/2023-vocation-of-lutheran-higher-education-conference-registration/
The registration fee is waived for Augsburg participants and meals (lunch and dinner) are provided to Augsburg participants free of charge. The deadline for registration is Friday, June 23. If you have questions about registration, please contact Janice Dames (x1732 or email@example.com). If you would like more information about the conference, please contact Jeremy Myers (x1202 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
