 Connect with us virtually!

In this time of uncertainty, we want you to know we are still available to assist you! To ensure the health and safety of our students and employers, we are planning for virtual events this fall. We know on-line environments can be challenging so we are offering training to our students on how best to engage with employers virtually. We encourage and welcome employers to contact us about virtual information sessions and interviews with our students.

Should you wish to visit campus, please make arrangements in advance as we have restrictions on gatherings.  All faculty, staff, students and visitors are required to wear a facemask when on campus.

Our office hours are Monday-Friday, 8:00 am-4:30 pm.  You may reach us using the following contact information.
