Center for Faith and Vocation

Reflections on 10 Years of Impact

The Center for Faith and Vocation (CFV) opened in 2003 thanks to a series of Lilly Endowment Inc. grants. The five-year ButlerRising capital campaign that ended in 2009 helped establish an endowed fund to keep the center staffed and its doors open. ( View our Prezi - 10 Years of the CFV and Counting.)

The center's ultimate goal is to help members of the Butler community develop lives of purpose, meaning, and contribution. And from what students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends have reported, it has succeeded. In 2013, to celebrate the Center's 10th anniversary, we captured some of their stories.
