What happens when I request a program?

Once a staff member has been assigned to your program, they will be in touch with you to confirm details, and answer any questions you may have. The staff member can tailor the topic to your group’s needs, and bring Career Center resources as requested. Once they deliver the program, students will have an opportunity to share their feedback via SurveyMonkey. You can request more than one program throughout the semester, and we value growing our collaborations over time!
