This Week's Message

As usual, there is a LOT happening in the CEC!

Almost two-hundred of our students attended the career fair (ProFair) sponsored by the CEC and St. Ambrose, which is more than last year! Thank you all who sent your students to the CEC for help with their resumes and up to PepsiCo for the event itself. Due to the great work of the Internships and Career Development offices, we had over seventy-five employers there who were eager to engage with our students. The biggest complaint was that they wish more students had please think how you can help out next year!

This week the CEC will be sponsoring Friday Conversations in the Wilson Center. Come and meet the folks from the CEC and find out all that we do. We do a lot for students-but we also do stuff for you.

Come and learn about some important new initiatives:

    1. Service-Learning Grant: $500 grants awarded for the development of Service-Learning courses
    2. Vocational Course Integration Grant: $500 grants awarded for course designs integrationg vocational reflection
