Faculty and Staff Consultation and Support Services

We value our partnerships with faculty and staff as we work together to provide an enriched educational experience for UWB students. Our programs are based on the philosophy that career development is a lifelong process and we strive to assert the value of an early and continued connection with Career Services. We are invested in partnering with faculty and staff campus wide to help students navigate choosing a major, developing lifelong skills and identifying careers. 

The Provost’s office has included in their most recent report series the importance of preparing students for life after graduation.

“Our students face a complex, demanding world when they leave the UW.  They need intellectually challenging majors, and they need broad skills to translate that knowledge into the workplace.  We need to help them make that vital connection – between their learning here and the demands of careers and the opportunities of life.  This is our goal – indeed, as a public university, it is our responsibility.”  Ana Mari Cauce, Professor of Psychology and American Ethics Studies, Provost and Executive Vice President
