The Nineteenth Annual Workshop for Senior Administrators: 

Hiring Faculty for Mission

Hiring Faculty for Mission will help senior administrators at church-related colleges and universities consider ideas and best practices for hiring faculty who embrace and forward the church-related mission of their institutions. Specifically, the workshop will address such questions as:

 

  • What are the best practices for church-related colleges that select faculty on the basis of their religious convictions and practices?  How can such criteria be applied? Is it legal to do so? Who should apply these criteria—departments, deans, provosts?

  • What are the best ways for church-related institutions with a pluralistic faculty to hire a diverse faculty whose members nevertheless forward church-related mission?

  • How can administrators balance hiring for mission with academic communities devoted to departmental autonomy?

  • What are some of the principal ways that successful, church-related schools have managed to discover, recruit, and appoint outstanding faculty who share and advance the mission of the institution?


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 National 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 an LFP 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 August 29, 2018. Space is limited; additional participants from member schools will be waitlisted until August 29 and will be enrolled as slots become available after that date.
