The Center for Professional Development (CPD) facilitates and supports the professional development of Dartmouth undergraduates and young alumni. We define post-graduate success outcomes as employment, fellowships, graduate school or service opportunities. To achieve these goals, we work collaboratively with employers, parents, alumni, faculty and staff.

We provide a host of services from individual advising appointments and alumni panels to small group workshops, job shadowing and "Off the Green" programs that focus on the breadth and depth of a single industry. All of our efforts are designed to usher students into a new ERA of professional development:

  • Explore opportunities
  • Reflect on experiences and
  • Articulate skills and unique value proposition

We believe every Dartmouth student offers future colleagues a unique set of skills and experiences. We help students dare to be different.
