Our goals are to help students:

  • recognize their skills and values and match those to their career interests
  • develop professional skills and etiquette
  • learn about industries and careers and explore the options available to them
  • pursue opportunities such as job shadows, internships and full-time jobs

To achieve our goals, we work closely with faculty, staff, alumni, and employers to provide knowledge and experience to students as we all have a common goal of preparing students to be successful professionals.
