Career Development at the DHC
The Davidson Honors College Career Development Program was established in the fall of 2017 through philanthropic support from Ian and Nancy Davidson, who believe that an excellent education leads to postgraduate success and the development of informed, engaged citizens in Montana and beyond.
The mission of the Davidson Honors College Career Development Program is to promote the postgraduate success of our students and alumni. To that end, we:
- Engage our students in developing and accomplishing postgraduate goals that align with their academic and personal interests, while also maximizing their positive impact on society;
- Promote opportunities for our students to develop professional skills throughout their academic experiences; and
- Connect our students with professional career advisors, alumni mentors, and relevant employers and/or graduate programs.
What We Do
