              Suggestions for Offering Alternative Assignments

              Students should continue to be in touch with their employer/partner regarding updates on both the University side and and employer/partner side.  As departmentally/disciplinarily appropriate, alternative assignments could be developed as students work towards the completion of the semester.  

              The Office of Student Engagement & Career Development offers a series of professional development/build the skill modules that are available in an online format. Students would register through Handshake:

              Build the Skill – A series of self-paced and fully-online modules emphasizing various professional skills.

              Design Your Search – Also fully online, but more geared towards students in the processes of looking for employment, post-graduation.

              Mary Frances Kuper from the Office of Student Engagement & Career Development is willing to field any questions or consult on the design of career-related assignments. Mary Frances can be reached by email at
