Resources for Faculty and Staff


Career Communities

As you engage Arts & Sciences students on topics of career and professional success, one significant resource to help them navigate career decisions is our unique Career Communities model. This new model features 10 industry based communities so that students can explore how their discipline relates to industry-specific opportunities. Each community has a career coach assigned to it, who brokers connections and brings great insight into industry trends and opportunities. 

Career Courses

Students have the option to explore how their interests, values, and skills relate to career fields through taking the Arts and Sciences College sponsored Career Courses.
