Our Mission

Lawrence University’s mission as a liberal arts college and conservatory extends beyond the conferral of degrees and the development of each individual academically; our mission includes preparing students for lives of achievement, responsible and meaningful citizenship, lifelong learning, and personal fulfillment. The Career Center works with students to help define and achieve their “life after Lawrence” goals, whether that be entering the work force, preparing for graduate school or engaging in meaningful service work.
