The Center for Career Development & Academic Exploration’s mission is to educate and empower students to achieve career success. We assist students in developing and implementing career goals. From choosing majors to gaining experience to finding full-time positions or graduate school acceptance, we offer programs, coaches, and resources to help them reach their goals. Families can also assist students with their career needs by offering support and feedback while encouraging them to utilize the center.
