Distinctive Programs: 
Life Calling and Career Office

At Indiana Wesleyan University, we believe everyone has a life calling. Discovering that calling is a journey. Let us travel with you through the process to provide resources, tools, and support. Your calling is more than your major or career—it's about who you are and what you can contribute to the world. All students are eligible for free life coaching by one of our trained and certified life coaches. Life Calling & Career serves as an academic home for students who enter the university without a major and are exploring their options. For many students, the Exploratory program is a wise choice for taking time to make an informed decision and avoid changing majors, which can be costly with time and money wasted. IUW provides a variety of Life Calling courses for students to further explore their purpose.
