NetVUE Launches New Online Community Network

The Network for Vocation in Undergraduate Education (NetVUE) inaugurated a new online platform in fall 2015, marking its latest effort to deepen the intellectual and theological nature of vocational exploration in undergraduate education. Through the NetVUE Community Network, campus leaders can collaborate and communicate easily about practices and resources that educate for vocation. Key features of the platform improve online access and deepen NetVUE member development.


Online Discussions

Through the new community site, NetVUE leaders can initiate and contribute to discussions either by using the online discussion board or the listserv function that allows them to connect to the community through their preferred email client. Any NetVUE leader within the community can launch a discussion thread to engage other community members. Recent discussions have focused on ways to strengthen campus chaplaincy, expand interfaith resources and prayer spaces, develop campus book clubs, create approaches for student reflection about purpose and meaning, offer effective holistic student advising, build campus community between faculty and staff members, and develop peer ministry programs.


Resource Library

Enhancing NetVUE’s treasure trove of books, videos, syllabi, presentations, and information from NetVUE conferences, the NetVUE online resource library has been updated to include additional materials.



The new online platform includes a blog feature. One click on the blog tab within the NetVUE community connects to the NetVUE Scholars blog, which also is available publicly at
