ALL SESSIONS: Student Leadership Institute (SLI, Office of Student Engagement), and Career Connections (CC, School of Business) credit eligible.

The Park Conversation series will provide an opportunity for students to interact with an industry professional in an informal setting that provides for brief remarks focusing on the “career pathway” of the speaker in reflection and advice pushing forward for the next generations of employees. The conversation will offer an opportunity for students to introduce themselves to the speaker and to ask questions. Each session will also allow for one to one breakout sessions at the conclusion of the general forum.
