If you would like for University Career Services (UCS) to come to your organization, class, or event and make a presentation please click the link to request a presentation below. Feel free to browse the programs we have available and find which topic would best serve your organization. UCS will work with you to schedule a program at a mutually convenient time. Often, late afternoon/early evening times or lunch hour times work well. We prefer to have groups come to UCS for programs in order to have the opportunity to show students UCS library resources; however, other locations can be accommodated when appropriate.
Although they can be shortened, these programs typically last 45 minutes and when combined with an overview of UCS programs and services may last up to 1 hour.
Complete the Program Request Form at least 2 weeks before the desired program date. Only one program topic area may be requested at a time. A UCS staff member will contact you to follow up on your request. You may request a specific UCS staff member in the comments section.
