Palm Beach Atlantic University has been selected to receive a $45,000 NetVUE Program Development Grant from the Council of Independent Colleges (CIC).
PBA is among 36 NetVUE institutions selected in the second annual group of recipients of these awards to deepen the intellectual and theological exploration of vocation among undergraduate students. NetVUE Program Development Grants are made possible thanks to a generous grant to CIC from the Lilly Endowment Inc.
Over the next two years, a team of faculty and staff members will a develop a plan to enhance existing resources, impact the campus culture and commit long-term resources to encourage and guide students in their exploration of vocation.
“This program is evidence of the spirit of collaboration that exists at Palm Beach Atlantic,” University President William M. B. Fleming, Jr., said. “This unique opportunity will allow us to serve the whole student — heart, soul and mind —in a way that honors Christ first.”
The program’s director is Scott Spell, assistant professor of business and business internship coordinator. Other team members are Dr. Craig Hanson, associate professor of philosophy; Kate Magro, assistant director of Workship; Campus Pastor Dr. Bernie Cueto; and Jennifer Fonseca, assistant director of Career Development.
