First-year to senior students will develop their online presence, grow their mentoring network, perfect their CVs/resumes and personal statements, and gain practice in communicating and showcasing their work in the form of exhibitions, conference abstracts/posters, elevator pitches, blogs, and journals that publish undergraduate research. Students will learn how to identify funding for internships, research experiences, and post-graduate fellowships and learn how to integrate their academic and experiential learning. Students will construct a professional development plan through self-reflection, peer review, and mapping assets to help guide them toward their future careers.
