PARTNERSHIPS

Student success depends on it. We’re here to partner with you to give your students the onramp they need to reach their academic and career aspirations.

Success Tips

  • Engage Alumni: Seeing is believing. Bring back successful alums to speak with your students about their career journey.
  • Integrate Experiences into the Classroom: Consider how a site visit, internship, or service-learning opportunity could strengthen student learning and professional development.
  • Real-World Exposure: When employers visit campus, join them for lunch or attend class-to-career professional development seminars.
  • Sharpen Skills: Be clear with students about the skills they develop in college. Give tangible examples, so they can then articulate these skills to employers.
  • Know the Outcomes for Majors: Career Services has plenty of data to share. Better yet, partner with us on data gathering and encourage your graduating seniors to complete our First Destination Survey.
