Faculty Partnerships with the CPDC


Just because our office is named "Career Planning & Development Center" doesn't mean it's the only place students will seek advice about their career development. We're here to support you in connecting classroom learning to the world of work, creating customized presentations and programs for your academic department, and providing resources that address basic career development concerns in advising meetings.

Each school and college has an assigned Career Advisor to act as a liaison to you and your students. Contact your school's Career Advisor to discuss partnerships and resources for your students. 

Career Guides

The CDPC's career guides address a variety of career development topics. Access career guides during advising meetings to view resources related to your students' questions.

Career Advising Appointments 

Refer individual students to meet with a Career Advisor. Appointments allow students to discuss their concerns in depth with skilled career development professionals. Action plans are created to provide students with tangible goals and accountability check points. 

Handshake for Faculty

Handshake isn't just for students! Experience the system by creating a student account and identifying jobs and resources available to your students. Handshake also provides career-related event information and opportunities to research and connect to employers. 

Employer Contacts

Employer partnerships are created for many purposes at a university. Of course, employers can hire our students, but they can also participate in events, speak to classes, provide information for curriculum development and review, and serve on advisory boards. Contact John Link, Director, for more information.
