Bring UCS to Your Classroom

There are a variety of ways UCS staff support academic departments and individual faculty.  We often co-sponsor events witha  specialized academic focus or can help a school or campus unit promote their career-related event.  We are available to plan a presentation or workshop on a career/job search topic, or to offer an orientation to UCS services.  Needing a back-up speaker when you are out of the classroom?  We can help!

To inquire about speakers/programs please contact:

Tracie Thomas, Associate Director, through email or call 847-491-5787
