Career Readiness Champion Network

Launched in the fall of 2022, the Career Readiness Champion Network  is a network of dedicated faculty and staff who have stepped up to further develop their skills in serving the career education needs of students.

Career Conversations are happening everywherecareer everywhere image

We recognize that we are a community that supports students as they develop personalized pathways leading to lives of  purpose and meaning.  Career Development & Vocation aims to facilitate and coordinate a community of experts across campus to discuss and share ideas and information around career readiness and vocation along with providing access to career tools and resources.

CORE, along with Career Development & Vocation, is no longer the only resource or gatekeeper.  Engaging faculty and staff in Career Conversations is integral to the department and college vision.
