Professional Development Institute
The Professional Development Institute is an annual intensive professional development opportunity that engages students, alumni, and friends of the College. The PDI aims to help students consider and prepare for “Life after K.” Through professional networking, mentoring, skill-building, reflection and discussion, and more, students and career professionals hone skills and deepen connections necessary for successful post-graduate pursuits.
In the past, the PDI has been aligned with fall Homecoming events in order to maximize networking opportunities with alumni. Beginning in the 2017-18 academic year, the CCPD will host multiple networking opportunities at Homecoming, and the PDI will move to later in the year and focus exclusively on students’ professional development.
