Helping Students Articulate the Value of a Liberal Arts Education Wednesday, July 22, 11-12pm 302 Catt Hall
LAS Career Services has purchased a webinar “Helping Students Articulate the Value of a Liberal Arts Education” from the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE). Articulating the value of their education is a struggle for many of our students. Please email Taren Crow at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to attend.
Curricular requirements enable liberal arts students to engage in coursework across the arts, sciences, social sciences, and humanities. They can study abroad, participate in volunteer and service opportunities, pursue internships, engage in faculty-supervised research, and more. Articulated well, these experiences can help the liberal arts student compete successfully for coveted job and graduate program opportunities.
Learn how to guide first- and second-year students through curricular and co-curricular acumen development in partnership with faculty, alumni, employers, and administrators. Also shared will be methods for helping third- and fourth-year students and alumni articulate the value of their education to employers and graduate program administrators.
Following this program, you will be able to:
- Recognize areas for resource improvement and innovation in developing programs that help students express the value of their liberal arts experience;
- Understand how to guide students to partner with faculty, alumni, employers, and administrators;
- Review templates and supporting data of successful initiatives at other institutions that you can adapt for your institution’s needs.
