Support Undergraduate Careers

Faculty can have significant influence on students’ career decisions; in fact, according to the Gallup-Purdue Index, four of the six predictors of future work engagement focus on faculty and internship experience. As such, we seek to strengthen relationships between faculty and students by helping to deliver career-relevant instruction and by consulting on best practices with work-integrated learning. Together, we can ensure that all students have access to vital career opportunities throughout their undergraduate experience. We collaborate with faculty to help create vibrant courses that engage students in transformational learning experiences by meaningfully combining academics, discipline-specific knowledge, and industry trends.

Request a presentation Career education staff provide onsite and virtual presentations by request for classes, student organizations, programs, and departments across campus. Submit a presentation request throughout the academic year from a range of different topics.
