News & AnnouncementsMore on Lilly Grant... Following 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, read the Lilly Endowment Executive Summary prepared by interim project director Bob Weisenfeld.

In January 1945, he was taken into custody by the Soviet authorities and has since disappeared. The lecture is free and open to the public.
