Our students are equipped with essential skills such as critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity that allow them to excel in a variety of roles and add value to any workplace. The broad, well-rounded nature of their education helps them remain flexible and adaptable and thrive in a constantly changing world. Their natural curiosity drives them to be life-long learners eager to solve complex, real-world problems and do meaningful work that makes a difference.
Grow relationships in CAS
Academic advisors are assigned to students by major, dedicated to their academic, personal, and professional success. This includes connecting students to opportunities to gain relevant experience through jobs and internships. If you are looking to engage with students in a particular major, we can connect you with an academic advisor to help with promoting opportunities at your organization.
Faculty within the college serve as great mentors for students. If you are looking to build connections with faculty in a particular major or inquire about a classroom presentation, we can introduce you to get the conversation started.
