Rethinking the Faculty Role in Students’ Career Readiness

This article from Inside Higher Ed  discusses how faculty and staff should take a more active role in helping students understand and communicate Career Competencies.

“If we take seriously the problem of student debt, if we believe parents and students when they say that what they want out of a college degree is a good job (whatever that means to them), if we listen to what employers are saying about the disconnect between what students are learning in class and the competencies they need in the workforce, we might all start thinking about our jobs as faculty a little differently.”        Rachel Toor
