The Career Education and Professional Development (CEPD) empowers students and alumni to develop skills and an understanding of resources to identify, pursue, and achieve their career goals. We also work with employers, faculty, and staff to ensure successful collaboration with students in finding meaningful and rewarding internships and employment opportunities!

We are convinced that the best opportunities go to those who are most prepared to compete in the professional and educational marketplace. To prepare students for careers, we:

  • Advise students in education and career paths
  • Provide career development services, seminars, and events for students and alumni
  • Maintain collaboration with students, faculty, and employers to offer quality career opportunities
  • Provide cooperative education and internship opportunities
