Conference Theme: Using the Past to Inform Our Future
We are living in unprecedented times. This year, the United States has faced pandemic, racial unrest and economic insecurity — all of which have affected our communities, social and political structures, and outlook for the future.
As educators, we have witnessed massive upheavals in higher education while responding to the global pandemic. Traditional, face-to-face courses were thrust into the realm of online learning. Dorms were closed, and campuses shut. Faculty mentored students whose lives were upended while at the same time wondering about the future for small, liberal arts colleges.
All these facts can leave us feeling unmoored and further isolated from one another. During these times, it is particularly important to seek out and pursue opportunities to foster connection with our peers. Join us in the discussion! Your input and voice is valuable, and we want to hear your perspective.
It is in this spirit that we cordially invite you to the 2020 VIRTUAL meeting of the Association of Lutheran College Faculties.
