Goal: Student Career Opportunities

Provide students with comprehensive career development services including access to internships, career exploration, experiential learning, and job placement.

The student learning experience is not limited to the classroom. Internship placements, service learning, and other experiential learning opportunities in the field provide hands-on experiences, enhancing the student’s value to prospective employers and for transfer to higher levels of education. Mentorship, job shadowing, industry/work-site tours, and informational interview opportunities also enable students to learn about the workplace. Providing students with comprehensive tools for career exploration and development throughout their academic experience contributes to long-term success of students.

We will achieve our vision for Student Career Opportunities by:

  • Increasing the percentage of students finding jobs in their field of study or in a field of their choice upon graduation
  • Increasing the percentage of non-traditional students pursuing careers in high-demand fields of STEM and Healthcare
  • Embedding career exploration and education into academic programs through curricular and co-curricular activities
