Whether you鈥檙e just beginning your undergraduate experience or about to head off for new adventures, the Boerigter Center for Calling and Career supports you in the next steps of your career development journey.

Located in the center of campus, the Boerigter Center for Calling and Career is committed to helping you gain valuable experiences inside and outside of the classroom. We are advisors, coaches and connectors with the experience to prepare you for life after Hope. We are eager to meet you.

  • Prepare: Develop skills and enhance your perspective through experiences, both on and off campus.
  • Pursue: Tap into the Hope network, polish your interviewing skills and take steps toward graduate school or the world of work.

These are lifelong skills you will use as you make an impact in our world.

The Boerigter Center is more than a resource for reaching your career goals. It鈥檚 a process. A plan. A guided journey that we travel with you, conquering the obstacles and celebrating the achievements, every step of the way. Here鈥檚 how:
