The mission of Career Services is to empower students to identify and maximize the connection between what they learn and how they make a living. Ultimately, it is crucial for students to self-manage their own lifetime career development. To that end, we offer comprehensive services to facilitate self-assessment, skill identification, career exploration, decision-making, career preparation and graduate school selection. Partnering with faculty, staff, alumni and employers we seek to guide students toward active citizenship in an interdependent world through productive and satisfying work.
