Mission and Vision
The “Verified” program establishes a consistent core of professional development content and experiences that equips students with the knowledge and confidence to direct their own success. Specifically, the program will focus on developing the competencies of Oral and Written Communications and Career Management. The remaining competencies can be best addressed through academic and extracurricular activities, although the Career Center plays a major role in educating students about diverse perspectives on Professionalism/Work Ethic Goals. Through participating in this program, students will have the content knowledge and confidence to pursue rigorous experiential opportunities as an undergraduate student and successfully achieve their goals for life after college.
