Our graduates are recognized by employers across Michigan and the nation as some of the most skilled and well-prepared individuals to begin in their industries.

Research is the cornerstone of education. Broadly defined, it means gathering of information for the advancement of knowledge. Scientific research is more specific. For a successful career in science, you must understand how to apply the scientific method to questions and use proper procedures to answer those questions. You must then share the findings with fellow researchers and join them in a critical examination of the work. Davenport University encourages students to experience this process first hand under the guidance of experienced mentors. Research students observe, describe, predict, and explain the world around us, leading to exciting new applications.
Taking a career or personality assessment can help you to fine tune your major, learn what careers may be a good fit for you, or even understand how to work more effectively with other people. Davenport offers free online assessments for our students and alumni, and we encourage you to contact Career Services after you complete your assessment to analyze the results.
