Ready to find out what MSU Denver can do for you? We’ve got you covered.
The Classroom to Career (C2) Hub is an innovative collection of career exploration and development resources designed to help students connect their classroom learning to career ready skills and to purposefully meet the workforce needs of Colorado. The C2 Hub represents a comprehensive approach to career development by intentionally supporting the integration of experiential and preparatory activities, related to career or graduate school, in all aspects of the MSU Denver Roadrunner experience.
As a faculty member at MSU Denver, we want to recognize all the ways you are engaging formally and informally with students, inside and outside of the classroom and supporting connection with partners in our community, from small non-profit organizations to large corporations. We understand that faculty members are often the first and most prominent connection point of career readiness for our students. The Classroom to Career (C2) Hub is striving to ensure that you are supported in guiding students and community partners through the numerous ways to engage in a student’s career development along their journey here at MSU Denver.
Whether you currently teach service learning and/or internship courses or want to incorporate experiential and community engaged learning to your curriculum, the C2 Hub supports this process through service learning course designation support, internship for academic credit coordination, and by facilitating the creation of partnerships with industry and community partners.
We can support you in building career readiness and skills into your course. We offer class presentations on a variety of career topics, from resume preparation, to graduate school preparation. Request a classroom presentation from our Career Engagement Team here.
Every year we celebrate your impact on student experiential learning, graduate studies, and career preparation at the Faculty Career Catalysts Celebration. The Career Catalyst Recognition aims to elevate your commitment and dedication to student success by inviting MSU Denver students to nominate faculty members who have significantly impacted their career trajectories.
Faculty Fellowships with the Classroom to Career Hub (C2 Hub) are an opportunity for faculty at MSU Denver to direct and inform program offerings and strategic vision within Student Affairs. These opportunities provide a chance to dive into areas prime for academic affairs and student affairs partnership in true benefit of the student experience at MSU Denver. Fellowships are compensated, pending Dean & Chair approval, through a course release for the spring and/or fall semesters. Participation in a fellowship over summer term will be compensated through stipend.
If you have planned professional development travel, or personal and family matters to tend to, Don’t Cancel That Class is a great option for student engagement in career preparation in your course.
