Students have the opportunity to work closely with faculty on projects and individual study programs. They will enter into a mentoring relationship with the resident faculty so they can be exposed to our service and research.

Many will work with the Applied Research and Education Center on evaluation and needs assessment projects in the community. This community exposure will serve as the corridor to the world of work during and after their years at the university.

Our students will eventually go to work in the private and public sectors doing work which requires them to write, speak and reason well. Their experiences working in groups will prepare them for the types of leadership positions most of our graduates hold.

The Professional Practice Program provides an opportunity for students to obtain paid employment, on-the-job training and course credit. Professional Practice students have been employed by local probation offices, social service agencies, hospitals and retail businesses.
