Spring 2021 Virtual Workshops
Join the Office of the Provost as we bring together mentors and advisors around the University in a series of workshops and professional development opportunities to learn about relevant issues.
Career Champion Program
Wednesday, April 7, 2021
Presenters: Karin Asher, Associate Director of the Career Center; Ryan Sweeny, Assistant Director for Career Development; and Alyssa Camerota, Career Consultant for Undecided Students
Through the Career Champion program, Pitt’s Career Center aims to educate and empower our faculty and staff partners when having conversations with students about their career plans. Participants will learn about the career decision-making process, hear best practices for career conversations, and learn about ethical considerations in the field of career services. Pitt’s Career Center recognizes the importance of our faculty and staff partners in the career education process, and this program will establish consistent University-wide messaging around career education for our students. Participants will receive a certificate of completion and a digital badge to showcase that they are a member of the Career Champion community at Pitt. Note: This is a 2-hour training, and participants should commit to the full training time to receive all the content.
Pitt Mentoring and Advising Community Circles
The Mentoring and Advising Community Circles (PMACC) are groups of undergraduate mentors and advisors across Pitt who share a common interest or experience. The goal of the PMACCs is to build professional networks, communities and knowledge around a common interest or experience in advising and mentoring undergraduate students. Each PMACC also has a specific goal statement in relation to that community's interest or experience.
