Center for Academic & Career Development
The Center for Academic and Career Development (CACD) is a “one-stop-shop” to help students succeed at Concord University. We are committed to assisting students throughout their time at CU with making the transition from academic pursuits to a successful career path. The CACD works in conjunction with many departments and offices at Concord, including the Office of Financial Aid, Business Office, Registrar’s Office, Counseling Center, Office of Disability Services, Student Support Services, drop-in tutoring, Housing and Residence Life, academic colleges and faculty, as well as community organizations. The CACD can assist graduate students with strengthening study skills, formulating a career plan, preparing professional documents, connecting with internship opportunities, and helping with individual concerns. The Center for Academic and Career Development is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Additional appointments may be made by emailing email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. We can provide services virtually on an as-needed basis, and many of our workshops are now offered via Zoom!
