You have a successful team made up of at least three people: your faculty mentor, academic advisor, and career consultant.
Your faculty mentor assists you in navigating Africana Studies by exploring career paths, providing advice on your professional goals, and identifying internship opportunities.
Your academic advisor will help you with registration, serve as your advocate, troubleshoot, refer you to other campus offices, and answer questions.
Your career consultant will help you develop your career goals and interests, network and prepare for interviews, and polish your resume and cover letter for internships, part-time jobs, professional positions, and graduate school.
Together your success team will help make your academic and career goals a reality. Developing a relationship with your successful team from the beginning is the first step toward a strong finish.
