It’s that time of year again … when you get to make connections with off campus organizations that can provide you with rich opportunities to gain meaningful experience during your undergraduate program. It doesn’t really matter what your major is, but if you are interested in working with people with challenges of one kind or another and helping them learn, overcome, and succeed, then this fair is for you! There will also be business experiences, non-profit organizations, criminal justice, social services, health services, gerontology, women’s issues, developmental settings, educational settings, residential treatment centers, and civic engagement opportunities.

DON’T BE DISCOURAGED IF YOU ARE NOT SEEING ENOUGH ORGANIZATIONS PARTICIPATING! We are continuing to get organizations registering for this event and will continue to update.
