RADNOR, Pa. (Feb. 15, 2012) — Undergraduate students at Cabrini College can now deepen their theological and intellectual exploration, thanks to a new initiative of the Council of Independent Colleges (CIC).
Cabrini is one of 13 colleges and universities in Pennsylvania and one of 168 nationwide to join the Network for Vocation in Undergraduate Education (NetVUE) as a founding member.
The goal of NetVUE is to help colleges and universities foster a quest for meaning, purpose and service that is shaped by a deep understanding of academic excellence and religious faith. NetVUE also will encourage member campuses to explore how their strategies and structures for education align with educational missions, and provide opportunities for faculty development, curricular programming, and student life initiatives.
“Faith and service always have been inextricably linked to the educational experience at Cabrini College,” said Dr. Anne Skleder, provost and vice president for Academic Affairs at Cabrini. “Joining NetVUE will help the College continue to be a leader in providing students with such a values-based educational experience.”
