About Us

The Center for Professional Pathways was officially established 2022 upon new development and philosophy behind career development and life design as well as the addition of the Study Abroad program. The office had previously been named the Service Learning & Career Development office since 2004. Prior to that, it had been the Career Development Office before expanding to include Experiential Learning services and the Community Internship Program.

Today, the CPP is located on the first floor of the Werner University Center, Room 119, and it serves as an active resource to both current students and alumni. The Center for Professional Pathways is one of the only resources on campus that is available to students after they graduate from WOU.

Together, we are committed to providing the WOU community with access to transformative experiences, education, and counseling/coaching engagements, and are here to help you navigate the process of designing your life and achieving your next goal. Whether that means finding an internship, applying for graduate school or starting your career, we’re here to support you!
