Center for Pathway Experiences

Resources for Faculty/Staff

 
Paige Jones HeadshotProgram Director: Paige.JonesFREEMississippi
 
"We want to develop students holistically, so that upon graduation, they are ready... We are here to help students find a pathway experience, fund summer experiences with a competitive scholarship, and finish their undergraduate degree with a graduation cord upon completing our reflection of their experience."
 
The Center is here to help you work with undergraduates as they pose questions about internships and other pathway experiences. 
 

Services for Faculty and Staff:
