Community - we build Accelerators so you can interact with people going through similar challenges.
Solutions - The Collective is a solutions group. Accelerators are both inspirational and practical. You not only learn about real examples, but our trainers share HOW you can approach complex topics...and why they matter.

Creating a Micro-Learning Focused
Online Career Library
The DePaul University Career Center
SESSION 1 DESCRIPTION
The DePaul Career Center recently completed phase one of a deep library of digital resources that can be used to help students develop critical competencies and get career ready. This library features over 50 handouts created with a focus on micro-learning, scaffolding content, meeting students where they are, and making career development actionable. This project also resulted in a growing library of activities for use in classes and other co-curricular experiences and 15 videos introducing career readiness topics in an engaging and approachable way. This project is distinctive because of our focus on “chunking” content, providing interactivity, and using design and tone to communicate optimism and actionability. Rather than producing textbook style dry text that reduces career readiness content to glossary words and action verb lists, we wanted students to be able to “grab-and-go” information on the specific subject they are interested in - with tactical advice on how to navigate the career development/career management process. Because of the diverse needs of DePaul’s 19,000+ students, ⅓ of whom work full-time and over 40% of whom are non-traditional, this library spans a wide range of topics - from Tailoring Your Resume and Cover Letter to Navigating Multiple Job Offers. We’re excited to present our Career Library as a model for scaling services, creating consistency across professional and peer career coaching, integrating into the curriculum, and providing career readiness checkpoints for all students.

Embedding Career into the Curriculum: UR Career Faculty Fellows
The University of Redlands
Career & Professional Development Center
SESSION 2 DESCRIPTION
The University of Redlands Office of Career & Professional Development (OCPD) faces the challenge of trying to help more students than ever before with limited resources and staff. The Career Faculty Fellows Program was initiated in 2019 to help the institution scale career services, and embed career preparedness more intentionally into the curriculum, with the goal of having 100% of students have access to career education. The 5 Faculty Fellows were selected via a student nomination process. With financial support from the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) Dean, faculty fellows are paid a small stipend for their work. As Career Faculty Fellows, they are required to meet monthly with OCPD staff, integrate career concepts into their curricula, identify additional areas on campus where career and professional development support could benefit students, partner with assigned department liaisons to share their work and encourage them to join the effort, and facilitate trainings for their colleagues. The goal for the program is to create a career ecosystem where multiple faculty are joining the effort to help all students be prepared and have a plan when they leave the university. CAS’s Dean, Kendrick Brown, says this about the program: “This increased partnering on the part of OCPD means that boundaries between academics, degree requirements, and career development have started to loosen. The “… Across the Curriculum” is an ideal and practice at the University and now career and professional development is a part of that.”
Career Everywhere at UCONN
The University of Connecticut
Center for Career Development
SESSION 3 DESCRIPTION
To maximize campus-wide impact, UConn’s Center for Career Development leveraged on- and off-campus partnerships and virtual offerings to broadly expose students to consistent career messaging and resources. A culture of career readiness, empowering students during their career exploration, evolved into the formalized “Career Everywhere” program. Career Everywhere brings the campus community together for training and idea sharing, providing faculty/staff with the most up-to-date career resources, trends, data and information. The program includes a robust marketing campaign, web resources, town hall meetings and 1:1 support. Components include Career Champions, Career Communities, Liaison outreach, career modules for curriculum development, and a Career Everywhere Advisory Board. Launched in 2019 with a “State of Career” event keynoted by Gallup, this highly successful event was attended by 150 participants, including Vice Provosts, Deans, Department Heads, faculty, and staff. 141 campus partners have become Career Champions increasing utilization of virtual resources including Big Interview, Handshake, and the Career Center website. Career Everywhere has been featured in UConn Today, the University’s main messaging vehicle. The program serves 32,000 students, our 15 member Employer Advisory Board and 141 Career Champions. Employers and alumni will continue to be integrated as Career Champions, expanding Career Everywhere beyond the ‘four walls’ of the campus community. Ongoing training will be offered to new and existing Champions, and curricular ideas will be integrated.
