Montreat College was recently awarded a $25,000 grant renewal from the Network for Vocation in Undergraduate Education (NetVUE) to enhance and expand its efforts to prepare students for calling and career. The grant renewal is a continuation of NetVUE’s involvement with Montreat College, which received a $50,000 grant from NetVUE in 2013 for two years of calling and career training.

“Montreat College faculty, staff, and students have benefitted from our involvement in NetVUE,” said Montreat College President Paul Maurer. “Providing opportunities for our students to explore vocation through the lens of our Christian faith is integral to the mission of Montreat College.”

The grant renewal will help fund two retreats for college faculty intended to deepen the college’s institutional understanding of and commitment to teaching calling and career; it will fund a strategic planning retreat on the subject of calling and career for the college president and cabinet; it will help fund the college’s annual “Calling & Career Week” symposium for students, faculty, and staff; and it will help fund a calling and career retreat for sophomore and junior students.

The Network for Vocation in Undergraduate Education is supported by the Council of Independent Colleges and Lilly Endowment, Inc.
