Career Services wishes to notify the campus community of a temporary suspension of our summer drop-in hours service​ due to the number of current vacancies on our career counseling staff.  We will continue to meet with students and alumni for appointments as usual and drop-in hours service will resume at the start of the 2016-2017 academic year. This temporary change to our service model will enable us to complete our active searches as well as focus on other key initiatives and training.
We appreciate the support and understanding of the IC community during this exciting time of transition.
