Linking Curriculum to Career Readiness to Support Student Success

How Columbia College Chicago Empowers Faculty by Bridging the Gap From College to Career

[Recorded Webinar]
Linking Curriculum to Career Readiness at Columbia College Chicago

In this webinar, attendees will learn how Columbia College Chicago successfully adopted a new Student Success Framework which includes career readiness by collaborating with a broad group of stakeholders at the college. By realizing a Student Success initiative would require connecting career readiness with curriculum, a committee was formed with Academic Affairs, Enrollment Management, Strategic Marketing Communication, and the Alumni Office.

Attendees will learn how the initiative was formed, technology was selected, how to build a strategic plan for rolling out Portfolium, and the best practices that have lead to student success at Columbia College Chicago.

In this webinar, attendees will learn:

  • Why integrating career and curriculum is needed for Student Success
  • How to get buy-in on a Student Success initiative from as many stakeholders as possible
  • Best practices for rolling out and driving engagement with a Student Success platform
  • How students are organically closing the skills awareness gap by reflecting on their learning and identifying which top NACE competencies they have achieved
  • Why the seamless Canvas LMS and Portfolium integration makes it possible
