Description

As higher education continues to evolve towards workplace readiness, it is incumbent on the academy not to lose sight of the ideals of a university education. Career development, seen as uncovering and advancing one’s mission in life, can be an important bridge between historical purposes of higher education and modern directions. Additionally, the mission of LU/LUO, based on Biblical principles, supports such a view of career development, and positions the university as a leader in integrating higher education with the world of work without devolving into a trade school. Recognizing that LU/LUO has an established Career Center and Student Advisors, this session will provide insights for the role of faculty in assisting students with recognizing and developing their life’s mission within discipline specific contexts.
