Arts and Science Connections: A Deconstructed Conference about Career Possibilities

Create your own conference by attending one, a few or all six presentations, workshops and panels that have been carefully chosen and thoughtfully packaged to create “Arts and Science Connections: A Deconstructed Conference about Career Possibilities”.

“Wayfinding is the ancient art of figuring out where you are going when you don’t actually know your destination. For wayfinding, you need a compass, and you need a direction. Not a map – a direction … Wayfinding your life is similar. Since there’s no one destination in life, you can’t put your goal into your GPS and get the turn-by-turn directions for how to get there.”  - Bill Burnett and Dave Evans, Designing Your life

Broaden your perspective and learn how to find your way and build your unique career path with a compass and a direction. No need for a map.

  • Listen to young alumni share their stories about building interdisciplinary careers.

  • Leverage Career Wayfinding and Strength Spotting to have your best career.

Thanks to the philanthropy of the presenters from the winter and fall 2021 Arts and Science Connections Conferences, the committee is thrilled to have donated $1,000.00 to the Student Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund; an organization chosen for the important work they are doing to support students' well-being through the challenges exacerbated by the Covid-19 pandemic. We hope to continue growing this fund in future Arts and Science Conferences and would like to thank the presenters who generously contributed to this donation.
