Our Mission Statement

The Luther College Center for Career and Life Design provides coaching and resources to support and empower students as they build awareness of their strengths, competencies, barriers, and drivers so that they have the confidence to build connections and experiences to inform their next step toward a well-designed and dynamic life.

How the Career Center can help faculty

Looking to incorporate new concepts in your course, or plan to be out-of-town for a conference or meeting?  Consider having our career and strengths teams come to your class! With a one-month notice, our staff can work with you to offer one or more presentations for your classroom. To view how we can assist, check out by clicking on our "Don't Cancel Class" options.
