Description

Rebekah PareWith mounting pressures from government, parents, and media about professional success and the return on investment of postsecondary education, liberal arts colleges of all sizes have done some deep introspection about their role in preparing its undergraduates for life beyond campus. In many cases, this reflection has proved sobering, and as a result, many colleges are taking significant steps towards reforming their career services for liberal arts students.

Join us for a discussion with Rebekah Pryor Paré, associate dean for the Letters & Science Career Initiative and SuccessWorks at UW-Madison, to learn more about these trends across the Big 10+ and the ways in which UW-Madison’s College of Letters & Science has been transforming liberal arts career preparation for its students.

This event is hosted by the Wisconsin Center for the Advancement of Postsecondary Education (WISCAPE).

Light refreshments will be served.
