Connect college to calling.

Exploring your calling is as much about pursuing what interests you as it is about knowing what doesn’t. The Career and Connection Institute (CCI) is here to coach you through that process, help you form a plan and connect you with opportunities.

Wislene Augustin

The Calling and Career Conference has taught me that my work is my worship. Whatever I decide to do with my life vocationally whether that is in a church, in the justice system or in a hospital, the work I do is worship to God. My faith influences my life and my life influences my faith, it is all blended into one.
Christian Ministries/Psychology Major

Brendan Sweeny

Having the experience and the network that I developed during my internship has helped me seamlessly transition into my new job, and has made me much more comfortable with taking on additional responsibilities early on. In my mind, a college experience really isn't complete without the practical work experience that an internship provides.
Political Science and Government/Business Administration Major

Grecia Beltran

I learned more about what I'm passionate about, my strengths, even my weaknesses, and where I want to use my degree when I graduate. It has been so sweet to learn more and get more involved.
