INCORPORATE US INTO YOUR CLASSES
Career prep and service opportunities are an important part of a 21st century liberal arts education. If you're looking to connect your coursework to career opportunities or service learning, take a look at how we can help:
Class/Extra Credit Assignments
By encouraging your students to utilize their resources through the Center for Career and Civic Engagement they will be exposed to opportunities they may not otherwise have known existed. Your encouragement will make a huge difference! We can provide attendance verification to you if interested. Please contact the Center for Career and Civic Engagement at firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements to offer extra-credit for a course.
Throughout the semester, there may be opportunities to invite the Center staff into your classroom. The Center for Career and Civic Engagement conducts over 25 class presentations during the semester to students in all areas of the University. We would welcome the opportunity to work with you to determine the type of presentation/workshop that would best meet the needs of your students. The Center can present to your class either in person or virtually. Topics can be tailored to the specific needs of your students with typical topics that include: Choosing/Changing a Major, Making the Most of Your Major, Building a Strong Toolkit (resumes, cover letters, etc.), Graduate/Professional School, Marketing Your Experiences to Employers/Graduate Schools, Job Search Strategies, Senior Seminar Focus, Using Social Media In a Job Search, Service, etc.
Don’t cancel class! Please contact us to discuss what would work best for you!
Students can login to Big Interview, an online interview practice and preparation module that will allow them to conduct a mock interview and then review it. These interviews can be kept private by the student or shared with a Center for Career and Civic Engagement staff member or a faculty member. Students only need a webcam, microphone and a moravian.edu email address. Students can also schedule to meet with a Center for Career and Civic Engagement staff member for a one-on-one mock interview either in person or virtually.
Moravian University has a strong commitment to experiential learning as a pedagogical approach to a student’s education. As we consider all of the extraordinary ways that students can connect theory to practice, we must also include the opportunity to embed service learning into courses.
Service-learning allows students to connect with real world challenges, in real life settings, in real time. An effective service-learning course involves students in a meaningful, reciprocal community project combined with reflection to process the learning gained from field experiences. Civic Engagement staff are available to help you brainstorm incorporating service- learning experiences into your existing curriculum. Turn to the Center for:
- Logistical support
- Partnership introductions
- Support for faculty to engage across disciplines
