For Faculty & Staff
Faculty and staff members within the Lewis & Clark campus community offer tremendous and invaluable support in a variety of ways as students navigate through the academic, co-curricular, and career planning process. Here are just a few ways you can help:
- Leverage close relationships with students to provide feedback and guidance.
- Serve as a knowledgeable source of campus resources.
- Offer feedback in a supportive style.
- Encourage students use of resources on campus.
- Ask questions of the student to stimulate reflection around and confidence in the value of the liberal arts education.
- Refer students to 3CE.
Whether you’re advising students, supporting their experiential learning, advocating for leadership growth, or educating them in the classroom, faculty and staff support is key to students’ career discernment process. 3CE invites faculty and staff to partner with us to assure student excellence. We provide career advising and counseling free of charge for current students as well as a wide variety of resources, programs, and services. For insight into how 3CE educates students on the benefits of an internship, search strategies and how to make the most of their opportunity click the link above.
Find ways to connect your students to opportunities in the community through ongoing, one-time, and immersion service experiences. Explore ways to engage with students outside the classroom, including one-time service days and faculty advisory roles for Alternative Spring Break programs.
Discover the value of integrating the community into the classroom through intentional academic civic engagement. 3CE works with students, faculty, and community partners to advance the needs/agendas of community organizations while providing students with deeper understanding of course content and civic responsibility.
Providing a quality recommendation is an important role of a faculty or staff member. It can make the difference in a student receiving a job offer, acceptance to graduate school, or receiving an award or scholarship. The recommendation provides valuable insight for decision makers, yet this vital service is extremely time consuming and somehow must be squeezed into an already full schedule. 3CE is a member of the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), a leading source of information on the employment of the college educated. NACE provides guidelines to assist faculty with writing reference letters and with responding to requests from employers to find students for job or internship opportunities.
3CE can help you work with students to identify areas of interest, create an effective job/internship search plan, craft resumes, CVs and cover letters and much more.
