Travis Kahle, Director of the UC Center for Career Development, had an article published in  the November issue of the National Association of Colleges and Employers Journal.  The article, titled “Overcoming Employment Challenges in Rural Areas: The Transformational Employer Engagement Strategy” highlighted the challenges that rural colleges face in recruiting employers to work with them to provide a connection (including internship and employment opportunities) to students. It specifically outlined the strategies that UC has successfully implemented to encourage local employers to engage with our faculty and students.
