To Empower students to take personal responsibility for developing their career over their lifespan by educating students about the knowledge and skills needed to develop their careers.
To see every CGU student enter the workforce and manage their careers successfully.
Welcoming & Supportive Environment
The CDO fosters a welcoming and positive environment! We strive to make students feel safe to come for help and support for whatever career goal they are working towards.
Student's come first. We build our programing and office dynamics to focus on the needs of the students. We develop and execute student centered programs and focus on what is best for our students.
Collaboration & Strategic Relationships
Nothing is done in isolation, especially one's career. Our office focuses on building strategic relationships on and off campus to provide connections and support for students beyond CGU.
We value education both in how we develop and execute our program and in our students. We recognize our students are highly educated and look for opportunities and connections that value education.
The Career Process
Career planning is hard, deep work that is often ambiguous and non-linear. This type of work requires strategy and lifelong commitment to the career development process.
Career planning requires a strong support system. Students must develop and nurture their professional relationships to gain access to opportunity and guidance.
Students should begin their career journey early. Students are the creators of their individualized career paths, which requires knowledge and self-determination to be successful in career development.
