Student Professional Development

Overview and Mission

The Certificate of Student Professional Development (CSPD) empowers UAFS students to develop the professional skills and personal attributes most valued by prospective employers through career preparation programs, experiential learning, and collaborations with UAFS partners. This is accomplished through workshops, mentoring, and internships that complement the content knowledge and tools taught in the classroom. While completing the Certificate through the Babb Center for Career Services we offer a variety of services connecting students with employers, thereby supplying local and regional employers with highly valued professional employment candidates.
