Vocation at UD

Vocation at UD

Vocation is more than an Institutional Learning Goal at UD.  Faculty, staff, and students across the university collaborate in vocation conversations, workshops, events and educational programs designed to guide all members of the UD community through a process of vocational discernment. 

The University's efforts are built around a shared understanding of vocation as "Answering a call to discover one’s unique gifts and employ them in service for the common good in ways that are personally satisfying and bring meaning to one’s life” (Language of Vocation at UD, 2017).
