About the Center for Career and Professional Development

Our Mission

The Center for Career and Professional Development (CCPD) helps students and alumni identify and reach their career and employment goals, helps employers access an educated and highly trained workforce, and supports faculty and staff by providing opportunities to increase student learning and skill development.


The CCPD was originally established as a placement office whose main goal was to find jobs for our existing graduates.  Since then, our role has expanded to include career exploration, career engagement, career preparation, and academic career guidance.
