The Strommen Center for Meaningful Work is a terrific resource for students on campus. If you haven’t looked into its work in helping students develop the skills, habits of mind, and values that are the foundation for life choices, career success, and active citizenship, please do so. There are so many ways that alumni can support our students on their vocational journey.
Alumni are a critical way that students can connect with internships, learn about employment opportunities and how to navigate the hiring process. Ultimately, the Strommen Center works to help students find their own meaningful work. Be sure to check out the upcoming event’s on the Strommen Center’s website, or contact programming coordinator Sandy Tilton (612-330-1472; firstname.lastname@example.org) or DJ Hamm (612-330-1329; email@example.com) to find out more.
