Leadership and Life Calling

The Office of Leadership & Life Calling experientially educates students to respond to God’s calling in their lives to become Christ centered leaders in a variety of contexts throughout their college careers and beyond.

Life coaching is available to assist students in choosing a major, discerning God’s will for one’s life, career exploration, identifying volunteer opportunities, developing leadership skills, and preparing for a job search. Orientation sessions in the fall and spring semester workshops are offered to help acquaint students with all the services provided.

Career focused resources, such as information about occupations, career fields, resume writing, job search strategies, interviewing techniques, graduate schools, employer information and job openings are available on the Leadership & Life Calling website. Full-time, part-time, co-op, internship and summer employment opportunities are also listed on the website and regularly distributed to students through their faculty and campus wide e-mail. Students interested in exploring career related interests and in gaining professional work experience, can participate in co-op, internship and full-time positions. The Office coordinates job fair activities both on and off-campus. The office also coordinates the Illinois State Board of Higher Education Cooperative Education Program Grant. Important information and links are available on the Leadership & Life Calling website. The Office is located on the second floor of the Ruby E. Dare Library.
