CAP Coaches and Staff

Bridging college to career


Career & Academic Planning (CAP) Coaches are a group of professionals trained to guide you toward your career and academic goals. They are here to help you with academic planning, major selection, career exploration and more.

Each coach has a specific group of undergraduate majors to serve or an area of expertise. Find your Coach and get guidance through a genuine conversation about your exceptional life outcome.

To make an appointment (virtual, phone or face-to-face) with a CAP Coach or Career Coach,  visit Handshake.

To learn more about the IDEA Center, see the message from the director.
