Whatever career questions you may have, we can help.
Advocacy: We seek to promote equitable access to career development by advocating for the needs of students and alumni we serve.
Collaboration: We foster an environment that promotes mutual respect, consensus, honesty, and transparency among our staff and are committed to cultivating meaningful relationships with students, alumni, employers, and campus partners.
Empowerment: We strive to empower students and alumni to make their own career decisions. We share educational tools, resources, and job search strategies with individuals so that they can advocate for themselves throughout their professional lives.
Engagement: We create opportunities for students and alumni to engage with employers in support of their experiential learning.
Inclusion: We strive to create spaces where people from all backgrounds and identities feel engaged and supported. We believe that inclusion exists when people accept, respect, and value differences. We affirm individuals’ beliefs and experiences as we assist them in achieving their career goals.
Innovation: We embrace new and creative strategies for the enhancement of our services to support our students, alumni, employers, and campus partners in an ever-changing career environment.
Intentionality: We encourage active and thoughtful exploration, discovery, and pursuit of work that is personally meaningful to students and alumni.
Reflection: We believe that self-reflection is an integral part of the career decision-making process. We offer individuals’ opportunities to explore what is important to them (values), what they enjoy (interests), and what they do well (skills).
