Faculty & Staff

The Center for Career & Professional Development values your work and understands the complexity in preparing our Whitworth student body for internships, jobs and employment after they graduate. Employers are looking for an individual who is skilled, knowledgeable and holistically career ready.

As part of our Shared Curriculum initiative, we provide career and professional development to all faculty with a goal of creating enthusiasm and participation from a greater student group to better serve our community.

We hope to help bridge the gap between academics and career education by utilizing our staff to teach in your classroom or by planning a career event together.
