Inspiring a Sense of Vocation

Our university is like a river, refreshed by a constant flow of new faces and new stories of impact and transformation. But what happens after students walk across the Commencement platform? How do they contribute to the lives of others? What we hear from our Ignatian Center alumni strongly suggests that spending time with communities on the margins of power, wealth, and status has proven to be a transformative experience. In many cases, their work with the Ignatian Center helped students wake to a real sense of vocation.

Vocation is not only about career, but has both wider and spiritual dimensions. It is about the kind of people we hope to become, the world we wish to help build and live in, the things and people that are important to us. Vocation is the work of a lifetime, and includes the legacy we want to pass on to future generations who will in turn become the new faces of Jesuit education, here, there, and everywhere
