Faculty working with students


The Center for Career and Professional Development offers many services for our faculty and staff partners. We work collaboratively with these partners in establishing and building career plans that span a student's four years at Western Carolina University. We are willing to work closely with you in the development of curriculum, extra-curricular activities and workshops and by helping you identify employer talent to bring to campus.
