Classroom To Career

Charge

The Classroom to Career Task Force will develop an integrated campus-wide framework to identify, connect, and align existing experiential learning programs and identify partnerships that could lead to new or expanded programs, with an outcome of deepening student learning experiences and career success. The framework will include goals, metrics, accountability and self-assessment.
