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. 

This online resource center contains information on a variety of career development topics. Access eResources during advising meetings to view guides, links, and videos 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. 

Classroom Presentations 
Help your students with a multitude of career development topics by having a Career Advisor speak to your class. Whether you would like a presentation for five minutes or an entire class period, a tailored approach can be created for your students. To request a CPDC speaker, please submit an Educational Program Request Form.

Co-Sponsored Events 
The CPDC is happy to co-sponsor programs with academic departments. Past programs have included alumni panels and networking events.
