Career Discovery and Success supports the University’s strategic goals for student achievement by supporting students’ post-graduation outcomes through a coordinated approach to comprehensive, innovative, and high impact career services across the campus landscape. To achieve this strategic mission, it is essential that space is provided for students to explore career and academic options, and that support be provided to assist students in developing life-long skills and tools for informed decision-making and planning. The leadership within the Exploration Center envisions and implements operational strategies to create efficient and effective processes that foster opportunities for career and academic exploration and development, career and academic planning, and decision-making skills development. The Exploration Center is a foundational component to student success and provides essential programs and services to all students, with specific programs, services, and courses for those students who identify as exploratory.
As a leader within the Exploration Center, the Assistant Director, under the supervision of the Director and in coordination with other Assistant Directors, builds student services and programs, while leading and supervising a team of professionals that sets bold goals and innovative plans to establish intentional, outcome-driven student support. These leadership efforts foster opportunities for career and academic exploration, planning, competency development, experiential learning, and post-graduation employment strategies. Through their work, the Assistant Director expands the coordinated support between exploratory career counselors and academic advisors, develops strategic engagement and communication across functional teams within Career Discovery and Success and across the Auburn University Career Services Network and Advisor Caucus, to enhance exploration opportunities and the sharing of accurate major and career information in an effort to establish cohesive best practices and processes that support strategic departmental, division-wide, and university initiatives.
