MSU establishes new center for Career Development and Experiential Education

MOREHEAD, Ky. — Morehead State University (MSU) is taking another step to ensure the academic experience in and out of the classroom will put students closer to future success.   

MSU announces the establishment of the new Center for Career Development and Experiential Education. It is a merger of existing departments, including Career Services, Undergraduate Research, Education Abroad, Service-Learning, and Internships. The center will serve as the central resource for a career-centered campus culture that actively engages every student in achieving their personal and professional goals.    

The Center for Career Development and Experiential Education’s mission is to guide and support all MSU students to explore their strengths and passions, engage in career-readiness activities and participate in hands-on experiences to develop in-demand skills. It will cultivate a network of faculty, staff, alumni, employers and community partners to facilitate connections and opportunities focused on the lifelong success of our students and alumni.   

The center also emphasizes these core values:   

  • Equity – Providing an inclusive environment where opportunities are designed for all students, emphasizing diverse perspectives and underrepresented groups.
  • Service-oriented – Guiding a student-focused team of professionals to exceed the expectations of our partners through communication and collaboration.
  • Growth mentality – Innovating continuously by designing programs and services to serve our constituents best using data-informed practices.
  • Resiliency – Promoting self-development focused on overcoming challenges throughout one’s career journey.   

The center will support faculty participating in Level UP, an initiative to ensure students opportunities to engage in hands-on classroom experiences to prepare them for success while completing courses that build students’ communication, professionalism, critical thinking and teamwork skills.
