Integrate Career Development Into Academics

Prepare Students for the Professional World

Let us assist you in your efforts to prepare your students for their professional journey. Our trained Career Advisors are available to assist students with their career development needs. Employers communicate their expectations to us, and we relay those expectations to our students in order to prepare them for their career path. We have found that students who do not seek out services on their own are the ones that need the most help. By integrating career development into your curriculum and pushing students to utilize the Career and Life Design Center, we can help minimize the number of students who need assistance. Listed below are various services our office specializes in.
