The Career Architecture Process
As a result of Stevenson’s formal strategic planning process, the president, administration, and faculty of Stevenson developed and introduced the concept of Career ArchitectureSM to the campus.
Career ArchitectureSM helps prepare students for the world of work from the beginning of their academic journey at Stevenson. Whether students are deciding upon or anticipating a specific major, Stevenson University offers a distinctive approach to explore new paths, change destinations, and map their own vision for the future. With the support of our career experts and committed faculty, the process of Career ArchitectureSM helps students develop a personalized strategic plan based on motivated strengths, interests, values, and individual goals.
At SU, we strive to inspire our students through exposure to a wealth of experiences, professionals, and real-world scenarios. This invaluable framework, plus timely tools and coaching, empowers Stevenson students to imagine their future and design their careers with a competitive advantage achieved by graduation. The process is a personal exploration for students to help them design their career paths beyond their first job. Through theory, practice, and mentoring, students acquire a strategy for lifelong career management and learning that contributes to future success.
Career ArchitectureSM is comprised of three elements that are introduced at various stages during our students’ university years:
Stevenson’s faculty, the Career Services staff, and administrators all work with members of area businesses and organizations to identify career exploration and preparation opportunities for Stevenson students from the day they first enroll in GPS. A combination of on-campus events and virtual experiences are available to GPS students to help them achieve their career goals.
