Welcome to Student Engagement & Career Development (SECD). We are here to inspire and prepare all graduates to create lives of opportunity aligned with their purpose and values. On this website, you will find the resources and support you need for finding opportunities, making connections, and building skills during your Wildcat and early Alumni years.
Our vision is that every Wildcat finds support within the University of Arizona community to:
- Develop in-demand employable skills within and beyond the classroom
- Engage in experiences that expand their capacity to lead and to solve authentic challenges facing our communities and businesses
- Design and implement a career plan aligned with personal strengths and values for a lifetime of opportunity and well-being
Start Here: LifeLab
University of Arizona students can get started with LifeLab, where they can find clear next steps for support and engagement, not only for their time as college students but to build toward their life beyond college. This on-demand service centers around a dynamic, peer-driven model that is rooted in critical reflection, followed by a warm connection to the University’s wide range of high-impact engagements such as research opportunities, networking, experiential learning, and internships.
Support for Wildcats, for Life
Upon graduation, Wildcats can utilize the Alumni Career Lab for life. In partnership with Student Engagement & Career Development, alumni are welcome to explore this site and find professional tips, advice and insights from Arizona alumni, faculty and advisers — no matter your professional focus or career level.
