Our CareerNext program is celebrating its Class of 2024! Through hard work and determination, four graduates have earned their degrees and are now embarking on new, exciting opportunities. Their CareerNext academic coordinators were instrumental in supporting them as they stayed on top of assignments, studied for exams, and advocated for themselves.
