The Center for Academic Advising & Career Engagement encourages students to use their “gifts and talents in the service of others, to make an uncommon impact in a common world.” We are therefore grateful for the many ways in which community partners, including alumni, employers, and community organizations demonstrate that vocational service through their continued partnerships with our University.  In fact, our success in facilitating students’ connections with experiential learning opportunities–including internships, field placements, shadow experiences, and networking events-is predicated on these critical partnerships.  If you are an alum, a local employer, or work for a community organization and want some of the best talent SE Wisconsin has to offer, consider these opportunities for engaging with our department:

Ways to engage

Host a Backpack to Briefcase session

For students entering the workforce, the stakes have never been higher. In order to shape uncommon graduates, we need to leverage the insights and best practices of today’s industry leaders. These lunch-hour TedX style sessions are designed to highlight your expertise and help our students make the transition from the classroom to the workforce. Topics can range from transferrable skills to networking or interviewing, to practical functions like organizing a meeting agenda. For employers who cater lunch, we’ll cater the student base to your needs. Whether you have a specific focus or take a more egalitarian approach, we would be happy to work with you to make this even mutually beneficial.

If you have questions, please contact the Center for Academic Advising and Career Engagement at 262-243-4499

Host an Employer Focus session

When you want more time to shine, to highlight the opportunities at your company and to discuss the culture, an Employer Focus Session may be just the right event. Similar to our Backpack to Briefcase series, you will have a captive audience of students who are equally interested in what you and your company have to offer.

For more information about leading an Employer Focus Session, please contact Stacy Tolomeo at

Host a site visit

Show them where the magic happens! For many employers, words simply won’t do justice to the meaningful impact you are making in the community and your respective industry. Although students love hearing about the great things they can do upon completing their degree, the experience of visiting a company, interacting with a panel of professionals, and seeing your work in-action can have a profound effect on their vocational goals. A picture may be worth 1000 words, but a site visit is worth 1000 pictures.
