Career and Personal Development  

The Office of Career and Personal Development provides a customized approach in the delivery of our services and programs in order to meet the needs of our students, alumni, employers, faculty, and staff.  We view career development as part of the academic process, and help students with key career readiness elements that will lead to the achievement of their career aspirations.  These key elements are: 

  • Facilitating understanding of self, including passions, values, interests, strengths, skills, and goals, 
  • Encouraging exploration and open-mindedness to career possibilities,
  • Providing meaningful learning experiences, and
  • Facilitating connections with employers and alumni that lead to mentoring relationships, internship opportunities and career opportunities.
