The mission of Center for Career & Professional Development (CCPD) is to develop globally conscious graduates/employees who possess the technological, problem-solving and project/career management skills needed to succeed in a multi-generational workforce. The CCPD staff offer interactive, student centered workshops to on- campus groups, including academic classes and student organizations, on a variety of topics.
“Don’t Cancel That Class” is offered to faculty who know, in advance, that they cannot attend a specific class session. In lieu of students missing a session, a career advisor or an employment specialist will lead a discussion on a specific topic during the regularly scheduled class. The goal of each is to foster lifelong skills that can be utilized both in the classroom setting and in the workplace.
