Welcome to the Walter Center
We exist to empower every Arts + Sciences student to turn their diverse talents and passions into successful and rewarding careers. We believe that career development is a fundamental component of an Arts + Sciences education. Our vision is to build a community of advocates – including staff, alumni, employers and YOU, our faculty – to collaboratively aid our students in the pursuit of post-graduation success.
One of our primary methods for facilitating this community is through academic integration – making career planning an unavoidable, embedded component of each student’s experience in the College of Arts + Sciences. We see faculty as one of the most important stakeholders in this initiative and we hope to partner with you to infuse each student’s time on campus with meaningful and impactful engagement in career development.
We know that your time is valuable and often scarce, which is why we strive to tailor our approach with your department to meet the unique needs of the faculty and students in the discipline. We have included some potential resources and engagement ideas below, but we hope you’ll reach out to us to develop a tailored approach for your department.
