USD Career Development Center's Career Champion Award

The Career Development Center strives to support students in developing and achieving career goals that lead to meaningful lives. We realize that this goal can only be achieved with the support of dedicated faculty, staff, and administrators who guide students as they explore majors, learn to articulate their strengths, and build professional networks. To more publicly recognize the value of our faculty and staff partners, the Career Development Center is excited to announce our annual student-nominated CDev Career Champion Award.

Call for Nominations

Students, we need YOUR help to recognize these outstanding individuals. Nominate a professor, staff member, or administrator--AKA your "Career Champion"--who has contributed to your career development or exploration. This can be a USD community member (outside of the CDev staff) who helped you explore majors or define purposeful career paths, who took the time to help you articulate your strengths, or who introduced you to opportunities to build professional networks. Please review the nomination criteria and rubric before submitting a nomination. Multiple nominations are encouraged. 

Please submit your nominations by April 16th. Finalists and Awardees will be recognized virtually in May.
