Faculty & Staff Resources
Faculty members and academic and student affairs staff professionals are the most important partners of the Career Center. Faculty bring the career and professional development message into the classroom, informing students about the specifics of major and industry workplace requirements and professionalism. Staff and academic advisors mentor students through the integration of academics, co-curricular, and professional elements of their college experience to help them develop as adults ready for the professional world.
We hope faculty and staff will use the resources and services offered through the Career Center in their classes, advising sessions, and organization meetings. Please contact the office if you have any questions or would like to partner with us in helping our ISU students success in reaching their career dreams - 812.237.2653; firstname.lastname@example.org.

Formalizing the Internship/Field Experience
All students registered for a for-credit internship must have a completed Student Placement Agreement filed with the Career Center no later than that fifth day of the semester. Students who do not have a completed Student Placement Agreement may be administratively dropped from the internship course.
As part of the Lilly Endowment Focus Indiana Grant, there are opportunities for faculty to receive funding for developing career and professional skill modules for their classrooms, developing non-credit skills certificates, and coordinating field trips and immersion trips to Indiana employers.
Funding is available to faculty or staff who wish to develop and administer a non-credit, professional skills certificate. Existing non-credit certificate programs can be found by "Clicking Here."
Focus Indiana Foundational Studies Mini-Grants
This is a mini-grant program to support development of foundational studies curriculum that helps students develop the soft skills commonly sought by employers. For more information on Focus Indiana Foundational Studies Mini-Grants "Click Here."
As part of the Lilly Endowment Focus Indiana project, the Career Center has created mini-learning modules that will assist students in specific career and professional skill development. These learning modules can be used as assignments for faculty to adopt in their classes, or for students to use on their own to practice the skill associated with that module. They are very short activity-based units that cover a variety of career topics that tend be more challenging or frustrating to students and job seekers.
Each module can be completed in 10-15 minutes and contains a learning component (an article, video, case study, or instructions) followed by an opportunity to practice. New learning modules will be added throughout the year. Check out the modules on our website here: Career Learning Modules.
