Typical planning information includes historical and current demographic information about UC, comparisons to peer institutions, and summaries of qualitative and quantitative feedback gathered from faculty, staff, students, and alumni. This data is used for program planning and review, departmental and college-wide accreditations, and department specific projects and goals.

The Center for Career and Professional Development offers a full range of services and resources designed to help students explore how their interests, skills, and values relate to possible career paths, understand the importance of proper planning and preparation in goal setting, and assist in the successful transition from academic to professional life. 

The Center also encourages all students to expand their learning beyond the classroom, and engage in experiential learning opportunities such as internships and skilled volunteerism.
