The College of Arts and Sciences Center for Career and Professional Success (”Career Success”) is proud to incorporate the voice of our students through our Student Advisory Board for AY2020/21. Board members provide the student voice in decisions made by Career Success regarding how we connect with, serve, and propel our students into their lifetime of opportunity. Board members:

  • Meet virtually for board meetings up to twice per semester
  • Share insights and thoughts virtually by responding to short surveys
  • Support career development opportunities for their peers by identifying best practices in communication and promotion
  • Are required to participate in at least two Career Success events or programs of their choice per semester
