Career Readiness Fellowship

The Career Readiness Fellowship (CRF) was designed by the Director of the Career Center and Associate Dean of Learning, Innovation and Teaching to implement a campus-wide initiative of Career Readiness through the integration of national career competencies by leveraging institutional partners/resources. The selected cohort of Career Fellows consists of twelve professional staff members representative of nine co-curricular and curricular functional areas across campus. These designated Career Fellows will be trained to promote Career Readiness and equip students with the ability to professionally articulate their University of La Verne college experience through the 8 NACE Career Readiness Competencies.
