The Lucy Rose Center for Global Leadership & Career Innovation prepares traditional students for success after Salem by encouraging the transformation of knowledge into action. We take a holistic approach to uncover each student’s unique potential, cultivate leadership, and foster self-sufficiency in preparation for global citizenship and life-long professional development. Students will be able to develop a professional career plan and image through activities which include but are not limited to internships, networking events, graduate and professional school sessions, social media education, and professional development workshops. Through participation in workshops, conferences, and leadership coursework, students will develop a deeper understanding and articulation of personal values and approaches to leadership and career development.
The Center’s primary goal is to help students develop and implement educational, career and employment decisions that will enable a lifetime of success. We offer individual appointments for career counseling, a Career Resource Library, internship placement, experiential learning opportunities, as well as many other career and graduate school resources. These services and resources are delivered in ways designed to reinforce the personal, social, and intellectual development fostered by a liberal arts education.
