Located in the Helge Center, the Institute works with all members of our educational community — students, faculty, staff, alumni, and external partners — to assure that Valpo graduates are exceptionally well-prepared for a lifetime of leadership and service in a complex global world. Through its speaker series, summer fellowship program, related coursework, and reflection opportunities, the Institute helps students connect the dots between their study, their service, and their plans for future success leading to a deeper sense of purpose and calling in church and society.
