Hamden, Conn. — Students at Quinnipiac University’s College of Arts & Science, and School of Business have always had access to a uniquely valuable set of resources through their academic programs and career services departments. Now, they’ll have the ability to personalize an integrated career and academic exploration experience through their new CAS360 and QUconnect platforms.
Quinnipiac recently launched a partnership with uConnect, a platform that integrates academic and career resources into one student experience. The new solution makes academic and career resources more visible so that students can effectively leverage key institutional resources throughout their journey.
“uConnect allows us to provide personalized career information and advice at scale.” said Jill Koehler, associate dean of career development and an adjunct professor in the School of Business.
Quinnipiac University join other uConnect institutions, including Bentley University, University of Indiana Bloomington, University of Washington, and MIT, among others.
Rick DelVecchio, director of career development at the College of Arts and Sciences, said, “This platform gives our faculty members who are engaged in academic advising the power to seamlessly access all the academic and career information they need, and begin to weave career planning into every student interaction. By combining this with their academic expertise, they can guide students to career insights in a way that they’ve never been able to before.”
A sampling of resources students can now access through the new portals include:
- Career and Academic Communities
- Advising Information & Contacts
- Digital resources, templates, FAQ’s,
- Event calendar and RSVP
- Featured employer profiles, and the QUCC job board
- Access to personalized alerts based on personal, academic, and career interests
- Lots of other unique Quinnipiac information, resources, and data!
Quinnipiac University’s College of Arts and Sciences students and stakeholders can sign up for personalized alerts at CAS360.qu.edu while members of the School of Business community can do the same through quconnect.qu.edu.
