You Seek a Plan

‘The place God calls you to is the place where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.’

Many students are unsure of what they want to do immediately following graduation. Most plan to soon attend graduate school or enter their chosen profession. But increasingly, a large percentage of graduates desire an opportunity to spend a year engaged in meaningful service that will allow them to travel, take a break from academics, and significantly help other people.

Service First was designed with YOU in mind.

The Institute of Life Purpose introduces Service First to connect Mercer University graduates to the needs of the world. You know that service experiences broaden your vision, sharpen your life purpose, and better prepare you for acceptance and excellence in graduate and professional school or your chosen profession.
