Many students often face challenges close to graduation regarding their career paths and goals. Traditional private offices can unintentionally radiate hierarchical power imbalance between the faculty and students that can deter the students from getting the support that they need in this difficult time.
Dedicating a space for career counseling with both individual and collaborative spaces allows the students to freely explore their options as well as receive any assistance needed to smoothly transition into the real world. It’s crucial to prioritize the students’ comfort in this space to eliminate any intimidation throughout this process.
