Faculty Engagement

Faculty and administrators have an opportunity to shape how students enter the world of work, advance their careers, and embody the SPS mission of creating future leaders in a global economy.

Career Wellness in the Classroom

It is crucial for students to not only manage their careers, but also to stay well throughout their careers at SPS and beyond. At SPS, career management is viewed as a holistic and cyclical process of career wellness: self-assessment, market assessment, exploration and decision-making, taking action, managing, and relationship-building. As a faculty member, you play an important role in shaping academic experiences that help your students move through these various stages. The NYUSPS Wasserman Center invites you to partner with us, and to explore opportunities where you might bring a career wellness-focused approach into the classroom, preparing your students for the changing “world of work” no matter at what point they are in their careers.
