LAB Partners & Sponsors

A laboratory for life after graduation. A bridge from the Liberal Arts to a meaningful professional life. A Liberal Arts Bridge to the first job, the next thing, and the future.

Internal Partners

The School of Liberal Arts collaborated with a robust task force of faculty and staff from across the campus in developing the LAB program. We conducted surveys, interviewed students and alumni about their experiences, consulted employers, and studied current research to identify needs and best practices. After piloting a number of events in collaboration with Career and Professional Development Services in 2017–18, we launched LAB in fall 2018, with a series of alumni panels, workshops, and other events. Each year, we've continued to expand and enhance the LAB program. SOLA departments, programs, or groups looking to offer LAB or co-LAB events may request LAB program promotion and/or funding here:
