Welcome to the Design Space

This collection of resources is designed for UB faculty and staff to easily implement career preparation within the academic curriculum or on-campus job and internship work.

Assigning career readiness work as part of the public health curriculum.

“Career core competencies fit really naturally into my coursework. Students learn how to apply course theories to their future work, and how to talk about that knowledge in an interview. In teaching, we care about transparency—and these resources underscore why we’re learning what we’re learning.”

- Jessica Kruger, PhD, MCHES
