We at the Center believe that college is a tremendous time of self-discovery. At the heart of this process is learning the skills of discernment - the practice of reflecting on your values, beliefs, and on what fires up your energies so that you can discover what it is that you are called to do. 

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.

At the CFV we provide students with the opportunity to discover what a life of purpose, meaning, and contribution means to them. Each student is unique and will follow a different path of discernment. The Center for Faith and Vocation offers programs and services that aid students in the journey of self-discovery.

Daniel MeyersI am pleased to announce the appointment of Daniel Meyers as Director of the Center for Faith and Vocation. A graduate of Willamette University (Oregon) in Biochemistry and Religious Studies, Meyers earned a master of divinity at Yale Divinity School, was ordained in the United Church of Christ, and is currently completing a two-year position as Earl Hall Religious Life Fellow in the Office of the University Chaplain at Columbia University.

While at Willamette, his participation in the Lilly Project, a summer Lilly Project Internship, and on the Lilly Project Advisory Board fostered Meyers' personal journey of discernment. At Yale, he assisted with alternative spring break programs serving areas of need in New Haven, Connecticut and an inter-religious leadership council. At Columbia, he has created Exhale, a space for student reflection, awareness, and discernment and has promoted diversity and interfaith literacy both in a pastoral care role and by facilitating student-driven cross-cultural and interfaith programming initiatives.

Additional previous life experiences that inform Meyers' work are placements at the Yale New Haven Hospital, a Connecticut hospice, and three years teaching in Newark, New Jersey public schools.

Meyers will assume the responsibilities of Director on June 1, 2015 with the goal of providing dynamic leadership for the Center in its second decade of contribution to the Butler University and Indianapolis communities.
