CLAS Faculty and Staff Partnership Resources

Thank you for your interest in partnering with the Center for Career Development (CCD).  Emily Merritt, Career Consultant for the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS), is available to collaborate on new ideas, share resources, and help CLAS faculty and staff in supporting students. While CLAS students are able to meet with any of our consultants for career counseling, Emily’s role is to specifically serve as a liaison between the CCD department and the CLAS faculty and staff.  Please feel free to email or call Emily with any questions; Emily.merritt@uconn.edu, 860-486-3616.

This webpage provides an overview of the tailored resources available to CLAS students through the Center for Career Development, and opportunities for CLAS faculty and staff to partner with our office.  Additional resources for supporting students can be found on our main Faculty & Staff Webpage.
