Division of Professional Practice, Career Services Merge

Primary tabs

After a thorough review of the responsibilities of the Division of Professional Practice and Career Services by the Office of Strategic Consulting, President G.P. “Bud” Peterson has decided to merge the two units.

The changes will be implemented immediately.

“In the review process, the one thing that came through loud and clear is that almost everyone thinks that there are some significant synergies that can be achieved by combining the roles, responsibilities, and functions of these two units,” Peterson said.

The consolidated unit will become a part of the Office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education. An interim director will be appointed in the coming weeks, and a national search will be conducted to identify a permanent director.

“Being under the same umbrella as units including academic advising and tutoring, undergraduate research, and innovation and entrepreneurship, and having a close tie to the curriculum committees and the faculty will clearly serve to benefit career and life planning,” Peterson added. “Having all of these units be part of a single organization has the potential for tremendous synergies among all of them.”
