Here’s how to get started:</h4> <p>1.<strong> Pray for faculty, administrators, and staff</strong> that they would glorify God in their work.</p> <p>2. <strong>You don’t have to meet faculty during the New Student Outreach (NSO) season.</strong> Faculty are also swamped during this time. However, a brief communication a few weeks before school starts and then connecting again a month or so into school year would be a great time to make contact.</p> <p>3. <strong>Contact your chapter advisor in the summer or a couple weeks before school starts</strong>. Most of us don’t communicate with them but they want to hear from us! Instead of being a necessary hurdle to get on campus, see them as having the potential to be your #1 volunteer! Try this:</p> <ul><li><em>Send them a text or email: “I know life may be crazy, but can we meet for 5-10min (on Zoom or on-campus) so I can give you an update? I’d also love to hear how we can pray for you.”</em></li> <li><em>“If you’re too busy, please send prayer requests and we’ll pray for them.”</em></li> <li><em>Circle back after NSO and send an update and ask how you can pray for them</em></li> </ul><p>4. If you are a staff director: <strong>send faculty advisors a gift and say thank you.</strong></p> <p>5. When you do meet, <strong>ask how they’d like to be involved or serve with your group</strong>. Most faculty/advisors have ideas of what they want to do (like host a meal or help meet and welcome students). Most don’t need to give a talk, but if they do, try using an interview-based format vs. having them prep a formal talk (it minimizes their prep).</p> <p>6. <strong>Remember, faculty can handle email</strong> and they will email you back.</p> <p>7. <strong>Reaching faculty is part of our vision</strong>, too (“Students &amp; Faculty transformed”)! We’ve had lots of success with faculty ministry even during the pandemic. It has been a significant bright spot, especially meet &amp; greets, even on zoom.</p> <p>8. <strong>Helping support a faculty group</strong> could be one your most impactful campus ministry strategies. Consider this: A 5-person faculty group would touch 500,000 lives over the span of one career! Faculty groups can take turns helping the chapter and spread the load of leadership around, providing stability to the chapter</p> <p>9. <strong>Community college faculty and staff groups</strong> have been very strategic and helpful and reaching them is a great first step in planting at these campuses. Remember, community college faculty care about the mission and serving students.</p> <p>10. <strong>Faculty meet &amp; greets have been a successful way to serve and connect with faculty.</strong> These meetings are about partnership: grad and undergrad ministry working together to love and engage faculty. Contact an InterVarsity campus staff minister or <a href="mailto:facultyministry@intervarsity.org">connect with Faculty Ministries</a> directly to talk more about this approach.</p> <h4> </h4> <h4>More Resources to Get Started Curious about helping to start a faculty gathering on your campus?

Women – particularly graduates, student, and faculty women - <strong>often experience a “double loneliness”: their academic department doesn’t “get them” and neither does the church</strong>. Connecting them with other women who are exploring what it looks like to love God and hear and follow his call will be deeply appreciated.</p> <p> </p> <p>2. When planning grad student and/or faculty events - online or in-person - <strong>be wary of planning over the dinner hour or in the evening </strong>to make space for women with young children.</p> <p> </p> <p>3. Many women – especially those who are mothers – may not attend typical student or faculty events but offering something especially for them now and then will create a way for you to keep women involved when they otherwise might not. These occasional gatherings can also be “doors” into your chapter as women invite others to join them. While Women in the Academy and Professions hosts various gatherings in person and online, they are not about starting groups across the country. Instead, <strong>they seek to help colleagues do their jobs better: to see and serve women on campus</strong>.</p> <p> </p> <p>4. 75% of Women in the Academy and Profession’s activity was already online pre-pandemic. Faculty Ministry has seen attendance grow recently by virtue of moving meetings to Zoom; more were willing to hop on Zoom vs. walking across campus to attend a meeting. <strong>So, don’t throw out what you’ve learned about hosting good Zoom meetings during the pandemic</strong>!</p> <p> </p> <p>5. InterVarsity’s <strong>Women in the Academy and Profession’s website/blog (<a href="http://thewell.intervarsity.org" title="The Well">The Well</a>) has great articles and resources</strong> for women in the academy and beyond.</p> <p> </p> <p>6. At the InterVarsity staff store, you’ll find <a href="https://store.intervarsity.org/the-well-bookmarks-bundle-of-25/" title="bookmarks">bookmarks</a> that help people find The Well (and our social media spaces) and <a href="https://store.intervarsity.org/the-well-booklet-5-booklets-per-bundle/" title="booklets">booklets</a> with a few of the best articles from The Well. Both make <strong>a great NSO gift</strong> that says, “I see you and want to help you flourish.’</p> <p> </p> <p>7. When sharing the link to “The Well” (or handing out a bookmark) you can say, “<strong>Here’s a place that gets you—they want to resource you and connect you with others who are on the same journey</strong>.”</p> <p> </p> <p>8. Don’t hesitate to <a href="mailto:wap@intervarsity.org" title="contact Women in the Academy and Professions">contact Women in the Academy and Professions</a> with questions or requests for specific resources or connections. They’d be glad to consider coming to your campus to help you gather women and/or coach you in doing it yourself.</p> <h4> </h4> <h4>Connect with Women in the Academy and Professions</h4> <p><a

field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>Karen is the National Director of InterVarsity's Women in the Academy and Professions, and lives in Marietta, Georgia, with her husband and three boys. Except for some years taken off to raise her sons, she has spent her adult life in and around InterVarsity — originally as a student and campus staff member in Michigan and currently in Atlanta. An entrepreneur at heart, she and some student leaders started the grad fellowship at Michigan State and the MBA fellowship at Georgia Tech. She loves to use her gifts of hospitality and teaching to create a welcoming place for people to connect with God and with each other. Although she rarely has time for it, you can find Karen at her sewing machine when ministry progress gets hard to measure and she needs to see tangible results from her efforts. She loves dark chocolate, good coffee, and British television. </p> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div></div> <div class="layout layout--onecol"> <div > </div> </div> </div> </article> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div></div><div class="_none"><div class="container"> <div class="layout row layout-builder__layout"> <div class="col-12 max-width-lg"> </div> </div> </div></div> Sun, 18 Jul 2021 20:48:34 +0000 AD-21277 450 at https://nso.intervarsity.org
