Vocational Exploration

Aurora University is devoted to helping students discover what matters and build their lives around it. Vocational exploration is an important step in this process.

Vocation is one’s sense of purpose in life. You can live out your vocation by utilizing your strengths, interests, and values throughout multiple facets of your life including your career, family relationships, faith, service to the community, and hobbies.
