Mapping Institutional Mission: Where Does Mission Live on Your Campus and Why Does It Matter?
will help participants explore how church-related mission is embodied and institutionalized in particular individuals, groups, practices, and buildings on their campuses. Mission does not exist in the ether, nor is its embodiment static.  Ours is an opportune moment, in light of the disruptions of the past year and a half, both to explore the contours of mission in our institutions and to reflect on how mission has informed our approaches to, and been influenced by, the challenges and opportunities we have engaged during this time. The workshop will help participants begin to map “geography” of mission on campus and explore how it affects the ways mission is expressed and enacted in campus structures, activities, objectives, and programs. Attendees will see and understand their campuses in new ways. Together we will identify aspirations, common and extraordinary challenges, strengths, and opportunities around mission. Participants take concrete strategies to address challenges and opportunities back to their institutions.

In addition, the workshop will pay particular attention to the way the disruptions of the past eighteen months bring insight into the geography of mission. 

In conjunction with its annual National Conference, the Lilly Network of Church-Related Colleges and Universities sponsors an annual Workshop for Senior Administrators of Lilly Network institutions. These workshops are arranged within the Lilly Network and are offered at no cost to senior administrators at Lilly Network member institutions.


 Each institution is eligible to register one senior administrator (president, vice president, academic dean, provost, or equivalent) or, given the topic, a relevant administrator. One academic administrator from a Lilly Network school may attend the Workshop for Senior Administrators at no cost. Accommodations, meals, and travel reimbursements of up to $600 will be provided for those who register by the August deadline. Space is limited; additional participants from member schools will be waitlisted until the August Registration Deadline and will be enrolled as slots become available after that date.

Registration Deadline: August 24, 2021. Registration is now closed. For more information, Click Here.
