Career Readiness and Planning

When the C2 Hub speaks of career planning, we refer to our Career Planning Strategy. We utilize a career planning strategy that is based on the key elements of career development and reminds students that this is a process.  This strategy is embedded into our operations, programs and services. There are three elements included in the strategy that are included in the Career Planning Strategy document.

Graduate Application Success Program (GrASP)

The Center for Multicultural Engagement and Inclusion (CMEI) and C2 Hub’s Graduate School Pathways Program have collaborated to provide financial assistance to MSU Denver students who are pursuing graduate school. Our goal is to remove obstacles that could prevent students from completing graduate program applications. Through these efforts, we aim to increase representation of students from low-income backgrounds, first generation college attendants, and students of color who submit graduate applications, are admitted to graduate programs, and complete graduate degrees.

This resource prioritizes low-income students, first-generation students, and students of color, but is open to all students interested in attending graduate school.

The resources below are intended to assist with your career and professional development needs. We invite you to share other resources that have helped you in your career journey. If there’s a resource you don’t see listed, but would like to see included, please share it through our resource submission form.
