AUGIE CHOICE

VOCATIONAL EXPLORATION

All students receive $2,000 to support a qualifying hands-on learning experience of their choice, such as international study, research or an internship.

Vocational exploration helps students discover and use their unique skills, gifts, talents, passions and values to meet the needs of the world.

 

Mission statement: CORE offers student-centered learning experiences that help students discover their purpose and passions, and connect them to their career aspirations. 

CORE offices are located in the Olin Center in the heart of campus, first and third floors.

Now, everything has a learning outcome

A college education has become a widespread expectation but many students have little idea of why they’re really there. The Chronicle of Higher Education reports on Augustana's vision of how students put together and make sense of the pieces of their education. Augustana has identified nine learning outcomes — like critical thinking and quantitative literacy — that apply to everything students touch: courses, clubs, teams, residence halls.

Forum at Old Main: Measuring student career preparation

In the first installment of the Forum at Old Main video series, Michael Edmondson, associate vice president for career development, and Mark Salisbury, director of institutional research and assessment, discuss the importance of measuring student progress in career preparation while at Augustana.

Finding a student's calling

Kristen Glass Perez, one of two campus chaplains at Augustana College, also is working in the college's CORE (Career, Opportunities, Research, and Exploration). She is now the director of vocational exploration, and her goal isn't to just help students find a job or internship. She's trying to help students find their calling.
