Career Development

Students take a variety of academic courses through the university, participate in explicit employment
activities, and are integrated into internship placements on- and off-campus in areas that align with
their person-centered plans to build marketable job skills and independence in employment.

Service Learning

Students complete a service learning experience on-campus. During the service learning experience,
students will develop and strengthen a variety of general and marketable job skills in the work setting.
These skills include, but are not limited to:

  • Communication Skills
  • Self-Management
  • Teamwork
  • Problem-solving

Embedded in this experience are opportunities for students to apply knowledge gained from their career-focused courses in their service learning experience. Students will also participate in career advisory meetings where they receive specialized instruction.

Focused Internships will take place at an employment setting that aligns with the student’s person-centered
plan and desirable outcomes. GOAL partners with several on- and off-campus employers to
host GOAL students as interns. Through immersive internships, students are given the opportunity to
build employment independence and continue to build specific, marketable job skills for their future
