CEC Advisory Council
The Career Education Center Advisory Council will provide a forum for employers and Career Education Center staff to engage in relevant discussions regarding a wide variety of career and employment issues. Information gathered from these discussions will contribute to the quality and impact of services and programs for Detroit Mercy students.
The Advisory Council will include representatives from a wide variety of industries which employ college graduates in Southeast Michigan. This board will meet at least twice each year on the Detroit Mercy campus. Council meeting topics may include current economic and business trends, skills needed by new college graduates, internship programs, marketing to today's young adults, etc.
Detroit Mercy faculty members and other university staff (from related areas) may interact with Council members while they are on campus.
