Career Planning and Development

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Continuity Plan

Note to Students, Employers and Graduate Schools about COVID-19

The Office of Career Planning and Development is focused on delivering safe and reliable resources in a manner that places the health and safety of you and our staff first. Due to the current state of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), all face-to-face Career Planning appointments, programming and events are now virtual.

We will continue to provide you with ways to utilize our resources and services that do not require you to physically be in our office. Below you will find ways to connect with us remotely. We have various ways to address questions, conduct online appointments and provide you with information and resources to empower your employment/hiring success.

If you have any questions that we can address, please feel free to reach out via e-mail or phone. We are still here to provide you with career-related resources and services to address your needs and make you successful.

Kind regards,

Harold Bell, Director
