Career Resources for Faculty

We are always looking for ways to collaborate with faculty. Whether making professional development presentations in your class or working with you to set up an internship for an individual in your major, we want to team up with you for the benefit of our students.

Classroom Presentations

The Career and Academic Planning Center is available to provide professional development presentations for students in your class or program, with the purpose of helping students discover their calling through engagement with academic, experiential and professional pursuits. Topics can include:

Internships/Field Experience

Students who apply for an internship for credit must list a faculty member from the respective discipline as their faculty instructor. Students are asked to meet with this instructor prior to completing the online form for credit on Handshake to work through details and develop clear learning objectives.

If you are listed as the faculty instructor on a field experience, you will receive an email titled “An Experience Needs Your Approval.” To access the student’s internship information, you can click on the link within the email. You then have the choice to approve or decline the details of the internship form, as well as leave a comment.

If declined, the Academic and Career Planning Center will communicate with the student to make any necessary changes or clarifications. Once all approvals are collected we will submit the learning contract to the registrar’s office.

Contact us regarding any questions related to the Handshake system. For more details, read the full faculty instructions.
