In this episode, our third in a series on NetVUE, our guest is Dr. Tim Clydesdale, sociologist and Vice Provost and Dean of Graduate Studies at The College of New Jersey. NetVUE grew out of an 8-year project in which 88 colleges and universities across the United States developed programs designed to foster a sense of purpose, calling, and vocation in the lives of their students. Tim led a massive, multi-year, mixed-method study of 26 of those campuses. His team interviewed hundreds of students, alumni, faculty, and staff, and surveyed thousands more. Their results were summarized in the book The Purposeful Graduate. We’ll dig into those results in today’s episode, and explore what they mean for educators and institutions interested in promoting purposeful work and a sense of calling and vocation within higher education.
