Launchpad for Success

Are you a first or second year student? Do you want a platform to help your career take off? If yes, then Launchpad for Success is for you.

What is Launchpad for Success? A two-year career development program to launch you from freshman year to graduation to the next step in your journey. This program is a collaboration between the Office of Institutional Diversity and the Career Center, and serves historically underrepresented students. 

What will I do? Participate in peer coaching, workshops, trainings, industry site visits, networking, and more. You will learn about internships and study abroad opportunities from on- and off-campus partners.
