News & Announcements
More on Lilly Grant...
up on last month's announcement of the nearly $2 million Lilly Endowment
award, here is more information about this important grant. The award supports
a comprehensive program that invites students to reflect on their "vocation"
-- that is, living lives of commitment to the welfare of the whole community.
Vocation is broader than career and encompasses the person's life, including
work, family, community service, and political involvement. This program
affords many opportunities that build upon existing college programs and
activities. It also provides many entry points for students, faculty, and
staff to participate in and help shape the program. For more information,
