Office of Personal and Career Development

College-to-Career Starts Here.

The Office of Personal and Career Development (OPCD) is here to help you navigate the college-to-career process and get started on the right track from your first days on campus. Many resources are available, including career coaching, self-assessments, workshops, tools, opportunities to meet and interview with all types of employers, and much more.

In conjunction with the department of education, the OPCD offers career courses, for credit, in which you can learn what you need to know about the entire career development process. Numerous programs and resources are also available to help you learn about mentoring, as well as personal, professional and career development.
