The University’s EXEMPLARS IN VOCATION are highly successful, creative and academically distinguished students who have participated in the diverse programs of SEDL and have emerged with increasing clarity about the purpose and meaning of their lives and how that translates into vocation.
Exemplars in Vocation
Some have chosen to serve in diverse professions and many have answered the high calling to service through ministry.
Frederick Buechner said the place God calls you to is the place where your heart’s deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet. These students exemplify that intersection of their heart’s deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger. With the exposure provided through SEDL, Howard University students are poised to transform not just individuals, but systems and structures to value the role of spirituality in vocation.
