Our definition of "vocation"
Vocation, as we are using it in the context of the Lilly Project at Willamette, does not mean strictly religious vocations; neither does it refer to building a skilled workforce. Rather, it means the way in which 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, about our political and social lives.
Means talking about engaging the larger questions of meaning and purpose, questions that, we hope, inform students' decisions and shape their lives, both during their time here and after graduation. We are talking about vocation in the context of a liberal arts education, one that opens up choices and options, one that teaches students how to think critically, inquire freely, lead wisely, serve generously and live with integrity.
How we live out our passions in the world; the way in which our values, commitments and beliefs are embodied in our choices about work, family, community life and civic engagement.
