"Equipping students...to serve effectively in their professions." – UNW mission statement
What began over 20 years ago as a one-person office with a three-ring binder of job clippings has flourished into a hub of activity, resources and services with four full-time staff, 10 part-time student staff and eight additional peer advisors and interns.
Every day, students and alumni come to the Center for Calling & Career (CCC) for career counseling, professional development and coaching on best practices in resume writing, interviewing, job searching and other topics.
During 2010–11 alone, the office saw 6,000 visits and hosted 45 events.
Formerly the Career Development Center, the Center for Calling & Career officially launched its new name Aug. 1 in conjunction with the opening of expanded facilities on the fourth floor of Nazareth Hall, made available when Student Development relocated to the Graham Commons.
