Op-Ed: Helping students reach their career goals

As director of the Career Development Center (CDC), I was dismayed and disappointed when I read the March 9 op-ed piece “Perceptions of higher education.” The author examines the Career Development Center’s employer Partnership Program and inaccurately concludes that the CDC is not concerned about the needs of students and instead “leverage(s) them for profit.” Helping students pursue their interests is the very core of our work at the CDC so I’d like to respond to some of the claims in this article.
