Why is Davidson College’s Career Center is Playing Substitute Teacher?

Why is Davidson College’s Career Center playing substitute teacher?

Reported by the Chronicle of Higher Education, when faculty at Davidson College have conflicts that prevent them from making it to class, they are asked not to cancel the class, but to call the Career Center instead.

This is just one way Davidson’s Career Center attempts to get in front of students and teach vital networking and career search skills, rather than waiting for students to proactively come to them with questions.

Professors can choose from a list of presentations they feel would be relevant for their course and student level.

The takeaway? How can we be likewise creative and resourceful about redeeming potential “cancel” days with hyper-relevant education opportunities?

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
