Virtues & Vocations
June 4 - June 6
Virtues & Vocations is an annual conference hosted by the Kenan Institute for Ethics, in partnership with Duke Divinity School, that will bring together scholars and practitioners across disciplines to foster a national conversation focused on how best to cultivate character in pre-professional and professional education. In 2020, the conference will focus on the professions of education, engineering, and medicine, but participants from all professions are welcome, and indeed encouraged. The design of the conference assumes that professions have a lot to learn from one another about how to prepare students to avoid getting stuck in a career by inhabiting a vocation.
