Unique to the Vanderbilt University Career Center, the Vision Place is set up to help you envision, plan, and promote your future. Think of it as maker-space for you—and whatever you want to do in the future. The activities you’ll pursue in The Vision Place are based on visual thinking techniques, and a career development system (“Wise Wanderings”) developed by Dr. Kate Brooks, the Evans Family Executive Director of the Career Center, and published in her book, You Majored in What? Designing Your Path from College to Career. Our Coaching Team will lead various classes through the fall & spring semesters.
All scheduled classes can be found under Programs & Classes in DoreWays. If you are a part of our faculty & staff community and would like to attend a class, just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org – we would love to have you!
