Our Mission

The University Career Center is committed to providing comprehensive, innovative services and resources for diverse populations of students, alumni, and employers that prepare UNC Charlotte graduates for the competitive global market. Through a focus on early, continuous career and professional preparation, we bridge academic knowledge and professional development. We seek campus and employer partnerships to connect students with meaningful, real-world experiences, leading to success for both UNC Charlotte alumni and the greater Charlotte community.

Our service philosophy is to enable users to prepare and connect amongst each other and the world of work.  For all our users, we are their consultants, trusted coaches, and collaborators. 

We believe our students/alumni are empowered explorers who are seeking career savviness through becoming marketable, practiced, and networked.  Students/alumni are looking to discover, learn, and connect.

We believe our faculty and university staff are our connected partners in preparing students and alumni.  Faculty are looking to learn, be informed, and introduced.  Staff are looking to represent, improve, and deliver.

We believe our employers and other professionals from industry to be engaged partners who seek to build a vibrant workforce now and into the future.  Employers are looking to network, recruit, and partner.

Equity and Empowerment Statement

We believe that it is our responsibility to advocate for and empower students to pursue their own power-oriented goals. We demonstrate our commitment to create equitable experiences by challenging our own policies and processes as well as employer partners’ awareness of equitable recruiting practices. Through intentional programming and readily available resources, we help students and alumni develop competencies that will enable them to be knowledgeable and capable in their personally, meaningful career journeys.
