Facilitators will introduce a variety of resources and strategies that instructors can build into their courses to ensure students see the connections between coursework and their future careers or post-baccalaureate education goals. Ample time will be given to learning about participants’ experiences communicating and fielding student questions about career and graduate school, and to discussing and generating unique strategies that fit participants’ unique circumstances.
