Workshops and Other Programs

Throughout the academic year, the Center facilitates workshops related to personality assessment, vocational reflection, and exploring ways students (and others) can better engage and discern their sense of calling. Students are encouraged to contact the Center if they have specific interests in certain areas as we will help connect with other related workshops and programs around campus.
