Whether you're advising students, supporting their experiential learning, advocating for leadership growth, or educating them in the classroom, faculty and staff support is key to students' career discernment process. The CDC invites faculty and staff to partner with us to assure student excellence. We provides career advising and counseling free of charge for current students as well as a wide variety of resources, programs, and services.
Both the CDC and Professor Gonzalez of the Politics department jointly share pre-law advising services. Please guide your law-curious and law-bound students to both resources. The CDC manages most alumni law-bound graduates' advising needs. For students inquiring about the institution's Accelerated Interdisciplinary Law Education (AILE) partnership program with Columbia University, and for more details, please refer to our Pre-law Advising page.
Partner with the CDC
Partnering with faculty is critical to students' success. Following are ways we invite faculty to work closely with our department:
If you need to cancel your class, consider inviting the professional staff into class time to conduct a targeted career presentation of your choice.
Guest Employer Presentations
When employers such as the US Department of State contact the CDC to recruit for their programs and employment opportunities, there is a key opportunity for them to share their occupational expertise in the classroom. The CDC will apprise you of opportunities to invite professionals to speak on content directly related to your course syllabi.
Faculty in all disciplines are encouraged to bring their Junior or Senior seminar course to the CDC during class hours. Faculty have used this time for the following programs: group career counseling, targeted resume workshops, and effective job search strategies.
Panels and Speaker Series
Annually, the CDC hosts a variety of professional and alumni participants on panels or as keynote speakers. Consider moderating a panel related to your disciplinary expertise or offering extra credit to your students to attend these industry-specific programs.
