The Career Development Center announces that it has changed its name to the Career and Professional Development Center.

“Our new name is a more accurate and comprehensive reflection of what we do in serving and collaborating with our stakeholders,” said director Tammy Manko.

The Career and Professional Development team also identified five core values they believe embody the mission and vision of the center to ensure they are appropriately serving their diverse stakeholders:

  • Integrity
  • Inspiration
  • Collaboration
  • Professionalism
  • Sustainability

“Transitioning the name of the office to the Career and Professional Development Center more fully encompasses the important functions and services that this area provides to students, alumni, prospective employers, and the university as a whole,” Patricia McCarthy, associate vice president for Enrollment Management, said.

“Since outcomes have been identified as one of the primary factors that students consider when making higher education decisions, we will want to continue to highlight and make all constituents aware of the extensive portfolio of services and opportunities offered through the Career and Professional Development Center,” said McCarthy.
