Center for Faith and Vocation
The Center for Faith and Vocation (CFV), located in the Blue House, seeks to provide opportunities for students, faculty, and staff to reflect on their own passions and how to connect the life they lead to a sense of purpose and meaning. We create opportunities to reflect and discern the kind of contribution you hope to make with your life’s work.
In addition to vocational exploration, the CFV is the center of community for religious life on campus. We are committed to supporting the full landscape of multi-faith, spiritual, and questioning communities at Butler.
Whether you are a person of faith, a devout questioner, or someone who is hoping to use the college experience as an exploration of your own passions, you are welcome at the CFV. Come visit us and begin your journey to discovering a life of purpose, meaning, and contribution.
The Center for Faith and Vocation and all of Butler University is committed to religious pluralism and extending hospitality to all people, regardless of faith or philosophical tradition. At the core of the CFV is the belief that communities are better for welcoming and encouraging diverse and varied beliefs, traditions, and practices. Some current rhetoric on the national stage seeks to undermine these ideals and sow suspicion of our Muslim community members. This creates a social climate that is unwelcoming and increasingly dangerous, specifically for those being targeted, and more broadly for all who uphold the value of pluralism and respect for people of all faith convictions. We invite Butler students, faculty, staff, and our various community partners to join the CFV in affirming the values of religious diversity. If you would like to learn more about the diversity of faith communities, please come see us at the Blue House and we can help you connect with the many wonderful faith traditions we have on campus and in Indianapolis.
Through campus-wide collaborations with the CFV, Butler has become a campus community that confidently builds lives of purpose, meaning and contribution. Butler students—regardless of their faith perspective—learn to honor their deepest convictions and respect the same in one another as part of the lifelong journey of discovery.
The Center for Faith and Vocation provides a place where students at Butler University discover lives of purpose, meaning, and contribution (vocation) by using tools of reflection and engaging in spiritual questions—no matter what their faith, doubts or philosophies may be.
