Providing central coordination for the undergraduate advising, career services & learning support communities

Career Services Communities of Practice

Take time for your own professional development and skill building by joining one or more Career Services Communities of Practice.

What is a Community of Practice?

Communities of practice are groups of colleagues who share common challenges, opportunities, or a passion for a given topic, and who collaborate to deepen their understanding of that topic and build skills through ongoing learning and knowledge sharing.

Communities of practice are not committees where the group is expected to produce work. Membership of communities of practice are not determined by position or title, but instead by interest in particular topic areas. 

Currently, the Office of Undergraduate Advising is supporting the convening of three Career Services Communities of Practice:

  • Career Advising/Coaching: Discussion topics may include best practices, theories, trends, techniques for working with students.
  • Employer Relations: Discussion topics may include recruiting/employment trends, working with employers, and hosting events.
  • Career Courses and Curriculum: Discussion topics may include developing courses, relevant content, pedagogy, and engaging students.
