Our Mission

The Center for Student Professional Development helps students effectively develop their professional capabilities, define their identities and build resilience as they prepare for employment in a rapidly changing world.

  • Identify their strengths and interests
  • Understand change and manage transitions
  • Develop professionalism at school and in the workplace
  • Understand and pursue opportunities
  • Identify who is in their network and how to leverage personal connections
