Major Exploratory Associate Candidate Presentations

Student and Academic Support will have two Major Exploratory Associate candidates presenting on the topic of assisting students through major exploration on March 8th and March 9th in 202 of the Stuckert Career Center from 9:15-10:00 am. The Major Exploratory Associate serves as a bridge between academic and career advising for students who are exploring their academic and career possibilities. In many cases, this position receives referrals from academic advisors in the colleges and also makes referrals back to academic and program advisors which is why we would love for you to meet them.

Major Exploratory Support

The Stuckert Career Center is available to assist students in the major exploration process. Our Major Exploratory Associate as well as Career Advisors have appointments available through Handshake. Students can visit and use their link blue credentials to schedule an appointment and check out a wide variety of career resources. As you see students for priority registration don't forget that we love referrals and hope that you will encourage all of your students to activate their Handshake accounts.
