Career Services has developed a wide range of high quality services to respond to changing needs, opportunities and constraints and has gained national recognition for innovative programming.
We have been successful in providing services in the most efficient manner by working closely with the colleges and campus units and by receiving their support for the various projects undertaken. Through this support, we are able to provide intrusive career information earlier in the student’s academic career, resulting in more effective decision-making by the student. Finally, it has also allowed for sharing and learning among career services providers across campus, thus reducing duplication of effort.
