For students interested in discovering purposeful careers and lives, the Vocation Exploration Initiative at Bloomsburg University (VEI) offers discernment tools, space for reflection, motivational events, and pastoral support for taking concrete next steps in that journey.
VEI is a program of Protestant Campus Ministry at Bloomsburg University (PCM) and has been generously funded by the Lilly Endowment, Inc. Our campus partners include the Center for Leadership and Engagement, the Zeigler Institute for Professional Development (ZIPD), and the Center for Professional Development and Career Experience.
Our goals are…
- To engage Bloomsburg University in vocational reflection with questions of purpose and integrity that go beyond career preparation.
- To equip BU undergraduate students with spiritual/theological discernment tools for making life and career decisions that are congruent with their faith, values and unique calling.
The four elements of our program are…
- Annual Speaker Event (Fall semester)
- Small groups called “Vocation Exploration Circles” (Fall and Spring semesters)
- Vocation Exploration Retreat (Spring semester)
- Resources and opportunities available through this website
