The Cothran Center for Vocational Reflection facilitates exploration of purpose and calling among members of the Furman community.
We provide resources, space, and experiences through which discernment and open dialogue across difference can lead to a clearer sense of what constitutes a meaningful life.
While Furman students, faculty, staff, and others are working remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we plan to periodically add reflections and exercises for those who would find these helpful. During this period of uncertainty, we hope that a familiar voice from Furman is comforting to our community. Visit our new Reflections and Exercises page to find resources.

Established in 2001, Furman University's Cothran Center for Vocational Reflection was initially developed through a grant from the Lilly Endowment, Inc.
We offer many ways for our students to get involved.
We emphasize the importance of dialogue between and among faculty, staff, and students.
Involving the community is an important part of our program.
Opportunities to engage in vocational reflection and connect with the Furman community continue after graduation.
One of the main services we offer students is the opportunity for direct, one-on-one mentoring and conversation sessions related to vocational calling.
