Vocation Week 2022

April 18-22

Grand View is a community of educators, staff and students committed to the multiple voices, histories, and faith backgrounds that make us who we are. Our experiences and values come together in a common purpose of providing a transformative education that prepares people to live transforming lives. Thus, vocation at Grand View includes a number of approaches to a life of service in the world. This annual event plays an important role in Grand View's mission to engage students.
