What is Career EDGE?

At Indiana University, we want every student to gain a Career EDGE. From the courses they choose and the experiences they have both inside and outside the classroom, students are building the foundation for their future career paths. To help students develop career awareness, we are creating a series of online modules in Canvas that can be embedded in courses or other organized activities and used by instructors and academic and career advisors in order to support students as they:

  • Explore their values, strengths and interests in relation to degrees and careers.
  • Develop an academic plan that connects with careers that excite them.
  • Graduate with a solid plan for furthering their professional goals, and be
  • Employed in a career that they are passionate about!

Eventually students will also be able to self-enroll in the modules.

The EDGE Initiative is a Lilly grant-funded project led by a team of faculty and staff from throughout the IU system. The Indiana University Office of Completion and Student Success leads these efforts and maintains the websites.  Please contact ocss@iu.edu with any questions or feedback about the sites.
