Lilly Summer Discernment Begins at Sewanee

Close

The Lilly Summer Discernment Institute, a program of vocational exploration for Sewanee students and those from other colleges and universities, will hold on-campus program weeks this summer; June 5th – 12th and July 25th – 31st. These are week of preparation and reflection, respectively. The first program week will prepare students for internships of six weeks in churches, non-profits, and other service-related settings. The week at the end of July will offer these students opportunities to reflect on their internships. This combination of vocational practice and reflection is intended to introduce a process of discernment for students in the formation of their vocational/career paths. Mentors to the program include Lilly Office staff, School of Theology and University staff and students. Funded by a grant from Lilly Endowment, Inc., the Institute has been a part of Sewanee life since 2002.
