A Commitment to Career Development places a priority on preparing for life after intercollegiate sports. The program acquaints student-athletes with the job search process, provides networking opportunities, and ultimately assists with job placement. As the Student-Athlete Development program works towards the development of the total person, the ultimate goal is to develop individuals who will have rewarding careers and productive lives.
