About Us

Our mission at CCWT is to generate evidence, educational programs, and research tools that promote the career development and wellness of students as they seek post-graduate success. In this work we center and amplify the voices and interests of all students, especially those historically marginalized in higher education and the labor market, with the aim to facilitate institutional and societal change.
