Winthrop University: Center for Career and Civic Engagement - Message from the Director

Message from the Director


On behalf of our entire staff, it is a pleasure to welcome you to Career and Civic Engagement. Whether you are a current student, alumni, employer, community partner, parent, or Winthrop employee, we invite you to explore the myriad of opportunities that exist through our office. Our primary mission is to provide resources and programs that will aid in our students professional development. Knowing that real-world engagement will make students stronger candidates for our local, state, national, and international workforce as well as graduate and professional school programs, we work with our employers and community partners to create service experiences, part-time jobs, internships, and full-time opportunities that build on classroom learning.

As the director of Career and Civic Engagement, it is a privilege for me to work with a staff of distinguished professionals in the areas of career development, service learning, and community service. Together, we creatively address issues and look for innovative approaches to meeting the needs of all of our constituency groups. If you have any comments or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thanks for visiting our website. We are located on the first floor of the Crawford building, and we look forward to working with you in person soon!
