Find Meaning & Purpose

Living Well Center for Vocation & Purpose


Let us help you identify your talents, gifts and passions.

The Living Well Center for Vocation and Purpose supports students and the greater LR community in creating lives of meaning and purpose. We want to help you identify your talents, gifts and passions so that you can use them to make the world a better place.

The center offers activities, spiritual direction, one-on-one conversations, group talks and hosts the Lives Worth Living series whose speakers include theologians, bishops, artists and advocates for justice.

The virtual home for the center provides ways to connect you with others in the LR community. You will find videos, TED Talks, blogs and other digital resources and find opportunities for small group interactions or individual appointments.
