The main functional areas of Career & Leadership Development are Connection, Culture, and Career.
We believe that when students engage in meaningful work in the co-curriculum, they become more curious and committed to their learning, and develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to succeed in life after college. Career & Leadership Development contributes directly to the learning mission of the University by sponsoring programs, services, and events that enhance the campus climate and tradition, and help students develop their career and cultural identities.
The mission of Career & Leadership Development is to help students learn skills and behaviors to become exceptional professionals and leaders that exhibit the institution's Core Values. Through the acquisition of knowledge, practice of skills and reflection on experience, the department will foster student success by establishing productive relationships with academic departments, employers and alumni.
