It will provide guidance on the implementation of recommendations from the College to Career Task Force to ensure the university provides the necessary support and resources to help students achieve the skills, experiences, and co-curricular knowledge needed to prepare for life after graduation.  

The Governing Committee includes representatives from across campus, including faculty, career services directors, the Graduate School, pre-professional career development offices, assistant deans' council, enrollment management, and the provost’s office. Committee members are appointed by the senior vice provost for enrollment management, in consultation with the executive vice president and provost.
