About the Center

God calls each of us, and every call is in some way a call to serve.

The Center for Vocation and Servant Leadership promotes openness to God’s call in both the academic life and common life of Seton Hall University to support the overall mission of forming students as servant leaders for today’s world.

The Center began in 2003 supported by a generous grant from Lilly Endowment to further their goal of preparing the next generation of Church leadership.

The Center for Vocation and Servant Leadership does its work in cooperation with other campus organizations and by sponsoring several different programs including: faculty development; scholarships; retreats for students, faculty and alumni; spiritual outreach to students; local community development; service learning opportunities; and the expression of faith through the arts.

The mission of Seton Hall University reflects a faith in God who knows us individually and has a personal plan for our life. The call to our vocation is not a demand but an invitation to join God in something meant for our doing.

A generous response to our vocation – like the choice at a fork in the road -- can make all the difference.

Mission Statement

The Center for Vocation and Servant Leadership advances Seton Hall’s mission to prepare a new generation of leaders for Church and society, by challenging the University community to be attentive to God’s call, responsive to the common good, and mindful of the example of Christ who came to serve and not to be served.
