What if ...
How much money do I make?” 

became ...
How much value do I make?”

Today, as young students think about choosing a vocation they inevitably encounter a profound tension. On the one hand, students are concerned with finding a career that will enable them to pay off student loans quickly and establish a future of financial security. On the other, many students will look first to the question of whether a career would allow them to do meaningful work. While young people repeatedly express a desire to do something meaningful, very few have a concrete idea of what that looks like or how to find it. Their primary resources consist of articles that are dominated by expositions on the most lucrative jobs, the fastest-growing fields, or the careers with the highest starting salaries. But what if instead focusing on the question,How much money do I make, we instead asked ourselves, How much value do I make?  When looked at from this perspective, what aspects of our internal conversations and deliberations about vocation would change?

It has been said that “you make a living by what you get; you make a life by what you give.” If we seek to develop students as human beings with many facets beyond their role in the workplace, then we must provide them the tools to think about careers beyond their financial returns. Indeed, the Bible regularly calls us to work not in order to gain wealth, for as Ecclesiastes 5:10 says, “whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with their income,” but instead to serve others sacrificially and to seek first and foremost to do God’s will for his creation. The most important question, of course, is not what we think is value, and what self-focused benefits we pursue, but (as always), what does God want from us?

In this conference, we will gather alumni and scholars across the workplace and the academy to discuss this question, starting from our basic foundation of integrating faith, reason, and vocation. Alumni come to share stories of their time at Dartmouth and how it has shaped their careers after, and to foster long-term mentorship relationships, many of which create internship opportunities. In panel discussions, we will show how integrating faith and reason provides a compelling framework for thinking about how we can create value.
