We believe professional readiness happens when students develop the skills, experiences, and relationships that prepare them not just to find a job but to build a life.
“A great college experience helps students decide the kind of life they want to lead, how work facilitates that life and gives them the attributes, networks and experiences to get there.”
— President Adam Weinberg
