Welcome to Career Planning and Development

Welcome to the Department of Career Planning and Development! It’s our mission to help KSU Owls thrive  — both in the classroom and in your chosen field. Our staff and faculty members are available to help answer any questions you may have and to help you get started on your career path. Through our many available resources and tools, you will have access to services, programs and experiences to help you succeed.

Find Your Wings. Find Your Success.
