The changing demographics of our student bodies present both challenges and opportunities. Diversity and difference are receiving increasing attention on our campuses, but religious diversity is too rarely examined within the larger topic of navigating difference at colleges and universities. And yet, religious diversity may be one of the most important aspects when thinking about vocation. This conference emphasizes interactive engagement with substantive workshops at the center of our work together, framed by the valuable networking, plenary sessions, and discussions for which NetVUE gatherings are well known.
