Partnership & Support

Our key mission is connecting career-ready graduates with the nation's top businesses.

The Partners-in-Success Program was created to recognize organizations who provide significant support to the Department of Career Planning and Development (DCPD), and to increase visibility and maximize recruiting effectiveness on both KSU campuses.
