Gustavus Faculty/Staff

Career Development is eager to partner with faculty and staff to provide students with resources and tools to assist with student career development. Whether you are a faculty advisor, FTS advisor, internship supervisor, or student employee supervisor, we hope the information below will help you engage your advisees in their career development.

Career and Vocation Champions Program

Gustavus Career and Vocation Champions is a campus wide program designed to equip faculty and staff to assist students with career and vocation questions or decision making. We understand many faculty and staff are currently doing this work and having these conversations already - we want to provide the background, resources, and tools, so that you can be prepared and confident while assisting students.

In this training, you will learn valuable helping skills and how best to make referrals to available resources. In addition, you will receive resources you can use to answer career and vocation related questions. We are also excited to hear from you how or what you are doing to assist our students with career readiness, vocation, and professionalism. This program and training is open to any Gustavus faculty or staff member.
