The Harrington Center for Experiential Learning, an integrated professional development collaborative, provides you with academic advising, career-development opportunities and internships.

Over a five year period, 97 percent of our graduates are employed or attending graduate school within six months of Commencement. One reason for our graduates' success is the internship program and the requirement that all students complete at least one internship or field experience in order to graduate.
