Explore U

Mission

The Explore U Team’s purpose is to facilitate the development and implementation of the Explore U five-stage career exploration model for La Salle University’s students. The Team is comprised of the Associate Dean of Students for Counseling and Health Services, the Career Services Center’s professional staff, Assistant Deans from each of the University’s schools, representatives from Learning Support Services, faculty representatives, and Alumni Relations. Specifically, the Team’s goals are to monitor and evaluate the Explore U model in its pilot stages (currently involving sophomores who participated in the first pilot year and all freshman), to reccommend improvements if necessary, to continue to build and implement the subsequent stages of the model, and to assess the outcomes.
