Career Services Directors

The MASU Career Services Directors (CSD) Committee consists of the university directors from the central offices who work with students to support career success and post-graduation outcomes that align with their interests and skills. The CSDs build effective partnerships with key stakeholders (e.g. students, employers, alumni, graduate school programs, other campus partners) to ensure that an educational experience from a Michigan public university offers students as many opportunities as possible to be “career ready” upon graduation. During their convenings via MASU, the CSD Committee engages on a number of issues that are central to their offices’ role in assuring strong outcomes for their graduates. Topics of discussion include: the latest in state, regional, and national labor market and job trend forecasts, as well as strategies, programs and tools for ensuring optimal career exploration and internship/job search support and resources for students. The committee also serves as a forum for sharing and evaluating advancements aimed at connecting employers with students and alumni, and the collection, assessment and communication of graduate outcomes to key constituents.

As with all MASU committees, during their convenings, the CSD Committee provides insights on the implications of current state and federal policy issues and the fiscal dynamics affecting Michigan’s public universities. Chief among such issues is preparing new graduates for the world of work, and educating them on the state’s and nation’s ever-evolving labor market and economy.
