University Career Services Committee

Ohio State utilizes a comprehensive, decentralized career services model. College and department career services offices exist across the university to serve target populations of students and alumni. To help facilitate collaboration, professional development and networking among the various career services professionals across Ohio State, University Career Services Committee (UCSC) was formed in 1978. Membership is comprised of colleges and academic units on the Columbus and regional campuses.

If you are interested in joining UCSC or being added to the UCSC listserv, please contact Miranda Johnson.
