Willamette University's Definition of "Vocation"
At Willamette, we say that vocational discernment is the way we live out our passions in the world: the way in which our values, our commitments and our beliefs are embodied in our choices about work, about family, and about our political and social lives.
Exploring vocation means engaging in, reflecting on, and discerning meaning from life experiences. This is vocation in the context of a liberal arts education- a definition that opens up choice and options. It teaches students how to think critically, inquire freely, lead wisely, serve generously, and live with integrity.
This is all about how we live out our passions in the world- if you're interested in broadening your horizons and finding focus, come visit us on the UC's third floor.
