Experiential and Career Development
Mission: To empower and challenge students and alumni to reach their professional aspirations
Vision: Every student achieves professional success
Students who enter the University without a declared major are part of the Discovery Program in Academic Success. The Career and Professional Development (CaPD) office partners with Academic Success to ensure high-quality programs and services that enable students to assess their interests, values, skills, and strengths and how these connect to majors and careers. As part of the Discovery Program, students will craft their definitions of personal success and significance by taking ownership of educational and career goals.
Services and Resources for All Students
We offer a full range of career-related services that fall into four categories: major and career guidance, internship preparation, job searching, and graduate/professional school. Examples of our personalized services include individual appointments, personality assessments, career and major exploration and decision-making, resume and cover letter review, interview practice, and critiques of grad school essays and applications.
