Career Communities

What is a Career Community?

A career community consists of a group of students who have career interests that fall into a specific occupational category. This model was implemented to provide a more targeted approach to guiding students through the career development process.

Our 5 CLA Career Communities focus on these fields:

  • Government, public policy and international affairs
  • Health administration and wellness
  • Non-profit, education and social services
  • Visual, written and performing arts
