Student Testimonial

The CFV has provided me with a space of refuge whenever I need a quiet space to study, a central location to hang out with friends, or a bit of advice from Judy/Marguerite. As well, the CFV serves as a community gathering for all religious groups, without judgement.

Faculty and Staff Resources
"The Center for Faith and Vocation was one of the biggest influences on my decision to attend Butler University. It is a wonderful place where we can all come together and engage in diverse and interfaith dialogues and learn from each other's culture and traditions. The Center provides a different aspect to the campus that cannot be found anywhere else and continues to support me as I discern my life's passion, purpose and calling."

- Brittney Stephan// CCO President

Professors and staff discover their own lives of purpose and contribution as educators through multiple points of contact with the Center.


"I'm thankful for the CFV and the opportunities that faculty and staff have to continue our own personal growth and development. I'm thankful that we can continue to discern our developing purpose and meaning as we mature in our professional lives."

CFV 10th Anniversary
"A decade ago there was no Blue House at Butler. No dedicated place where students could connect with diverse perspectives on faith. Where they could learn to meditate. Where they could talk together or with an adviser about the longing to live a meaningful life."
-Judith Cebula// Director of CFV

CFV 10th Anniversary Birthday Celebration during Family Weekend
Student Testimonial
"The CFV has served as a guiding hand for me at Butler. It has enhanced my Butler experience by not only providing a place where I feel at home, a community where I feel welcomed and a network where I can connect with others, but it has also provided me with opportunities to learn more about others. Above all, the CFV has helped me to discover myself by allowing me to connect with others, learn new perspectives and explore my place in the world.
-Loor Alshawa//MSA President
