Our office was previously called Career Services, and we are now Career & Professional Development (or the Office of Career and Professional Development).
Hope this helps - I am pretty in the office, but would be happy to look into more information on how our name change went if that would be helpful. Good luck with your proposal!
We are a small Christian, Liberal Arts, work college and as of now we use the title "Career Center." We are exploring the name change to incorporate the word "vocation. The college has a five-fold mission, and one of the goals is vocation. By reflecting this goal, we want to help all stakeholders to understand that our student's vocation is more than employment. It is a more holistic view of our purpose to serve through and in our employment.
Hi Susan,Thanks for posting this discussion. We're in a similar situation and plan to re-name our career centre this academic year - new name TBD. We are currently called the Hari B. Varshney Business Career Centre and we serve around 4,500 undergraduate and graduate students within the university's business school. Our goal for re-naming is to better align our brand to our new strategic plan and model, which emphasizes both personal and professional development support.Good luck,Emily
