Alumni and Career Placement Center

Graduation is a milestone that marks the successful end of students’ academic journey, but it does not mark the end of the relationship between the University and its alumni.

The Alumni and Career Placement Center maintains strong relationships with our ever-growing community of vibrant, thriving, and highly engaged alumni. It also provides a multitude of services that aids them in finding rewarding careers.

Giving our alumni a new place to call home!

The center supports, engages, and maintains strong relationships with over 7,000 alumni, as well as enhances the professional and personal development of our graduates.
