MILWAUKEE, WI – Mount Mary College is issuing a Call for Papers for its national "Mission in Action" Symposium to be held at the College October 7-9, 2010. Presentations and panels from all fields of study (academic and administrative) are invited to explore and share ways of integrating a college's mission statement into the college more creatively and effectively in both curricular and co-curricular programming. Practical and theoretical applications are welcome. Author, activist, and founder of Volunteer Missionary Movement, Edwina Gateley (edwinagateley.com), will give the Symposium's keynote address.
Especially welcome are papers and panels that connect their institution's mission statement to current concerns in their fields: ethics, globalization, social justice, cultural ideals, or sustainability, to name a few. Proposals for 15-20 minute presentations are now being accepted for consideration.
Submit one-page, double spaced abstracts by March 30, 2010 to:
