Event Title

Part I: Beyond the 'Either/Or' Debate Surrounding Career Preparation

Abstract

A frequent critique of higher education from both parents and employers is that undergraduates lack the skills necessary to succeed in the workplace. In response, campus stakeholders warn that increased focus on professional development would harm the educational mission of colleges and universities. This presentation will explore the legislative and economic climate that is fomenting this debate and suggest strategies for reframing the debate around an integrated approach to academic and career development that moves beyond the traditional career services office.
