Connecting Students to Opportunity

In an ongoing effort to produce the best student experience and link students to rewarding careers after graduation, three UA offices have combined to create a new unit. 

UA Student Engagement and Career Development unites Career Services, the Office of Student Engagement and Leadership Programs, under a singular mission - to ensure the UA prepares all graduates to create lives of opportunity aligned with their purpose and values. 

Through this new unit, students will have the opportunity to solve real-world challenges faced by businesses, as well as lead and serve on community projects. These engagement experiences help students develop employable skills and design a career plan.

Critically, UA Student Engagement and Career Development will build career development into the entire student experience. Rather than treating career development as an event or appointment, the new unit integrates career exploration, skill building, and leadership experiences into a career development life cycle.
