Career Influencers Network

Career Influencers Network


Recognizing that students develop circles of trust all across the SCU community, we acknowledge and appreciate the many faculty and staff having career conversations with students. Therefore, the Career Influencer Network was developed as a broader effort to better inform and coordinate the “career influencers” already guiding student development all over campus.


Meet the Network Members

Currently, the network is made up of over 100 SCU faculty and staff who support students’ exploration and pursuit of meaningful opportunities.
