​Last Updated: May 26, 2020

ZOOM CONVERSATIONS

NetVUE has been hosting conversations among administrators, faculty, and staff from the various campuses based on their role or portfolio. Thus far, gatherings have been hosted for chaplains, for directors and staff at centers for vocation and/or career services, and staff working in academic affairs or student affairs. If you work at a NetVUE institution and would be interested in participating in (or facilitating) a conversation with colleagues in any of these areas (or others), please contact Lynne Spoelhof at lspoelhof@cic.nche.edu.

VOCATION MATTERS

The NetVUE blog includes posts related to themes of vocation in times of suffering and crisis. View a (regularly updated) list of these resources. Here is a partial list of posts from the past few weeks that specifically address vocation in a time of pandemic:

NETWORK ONLINE COMMUNITY: RESOURCES FOLDER

The NetVUE online community network now includes a folder for materials created by staff and faculty members at NetVUE campuses for use with students during the current pandemic. This folder is continually updated as materials are shared with us. The NetVUE online community requires a login, but anyone who works at a NetVUE member institution can obtain credentials. Click on “Library” and open the folder titled “Discussion Board Documents” in order to access a folder marked “Pandemic-related.” If you know of something that might be usefully added to this folder, please send it to Hannah Schell at hschell@cic.nche.edu. If you are not able to access the online library, please send your name, title, institution, email address, and phone number to Lynne Spoelhof at lspoelhof@cic.nche.edu, and she will provide you with login credentials.

WEBSITES AND ONLINE COMMUNITIES
