What We Do
Our goal is to guide your student through the career development process. This includes self assessment, exploration of careers, deciding on a major or career path, and developing the skills and knowledge to be successful. Check out our 4 year time-line for students here!
Focus is our online career assessment tool that can help students identify potential majors and career options. It is available free for all students, please encourage your student to take the assessment and meet with us to discuss their results.
What You Can Do

Ask what they need from you and how you can best support them
Encourage them become involved in campus organizations, athletics, or research with faculty
