The Student Center for Professional Development (SCPD) is a bridge between a student’s academic life and career. We focus on helping students develop the professional skills and personal attributes most valued by prospective employers. The Passport to Success (Passport) is an umbrella program consisting of a series of professional development workshops and events, Community Scholars (CS), the Corporate Mentoring Program (CMP) and a leadership retreat.
SCPD has been a valuable part of the College of Business Administration for many years. All of our very successful programs have been updated in academic year 2010 - 2011 to meet the changing needs of students entering the workforce in the second decade of the 21st century. Our new updated programs will be available to students beginning fall semester 2011. SCPD programs are free. Participation is voluntary and students must meet certain criteria to qualify. Students who participate in our programs have higher graduation rates, are better prepared for the corporate world and generally make more productive and valuable employees.
