Name Change: Career and Professional Education Center

The Career Development Center (CDC) will be renamed the Career and Professional Education Center (CAPE), effective July 1. The new name reflects the center’s mission to educate the whole student on career exploration and professional preparation. This shift also reflects the center’s extensive work with the local and national employment community, faculty members across campus, and the multiple constituents it works with daily. The center’s focus continues to remain on serving all students in a safe and inclusive environment.

As college students continue to evolve and change, career centers must proactively prepare for their diverse and unique career-related needs. Last summer, the CDC staff came together to examine the role that career development plays in today’s college student experience. Staff members considered the following questions:

  • What is the center’s role in preparing students for their future careers?
  • How can it adapt, grow, and change?
  • How can the center’s mission reflect career development and not just careers?

After examining best practices and reviewing their answers, the center’s staff members collaboratively agreed on the name change.

I ask that you help us celebrate the new name and make any necessary changes to your documents to reflect the center’s new identity. The website and email will also change to cape.buffalostate.edu and careers@buffalostate.edu, respectively. Thank you.
