Faculty and staff resources
Career Development’s work with students is grounded in theories and research from education, human development, and industry, including: Positive Psychology (Seligman), Emotional Intelligence (Goleman), Career Chaos Theory (Bright), Identity Capital (Cote), Blended Learning/70-20-10 (Center for Creative Leadership) and Self-Authorship.
We emphasize the importance of developing identity capital from a student’s very first semester on campus through hands-on experience, developing transferable skills, and identifying one’s strengths. Career Development strives to help students prepare for a lifelong career journey, advising them on the importance of resilience and recognizing opportunities as they navigate an evolving world and job market.
We rely on our Faculty and Staff partners to help spread our message and connect us with students. Connect with us to schedule a Career Development Workshop during your class or co-curricular activity.
