About the CEC

The Career Exploration Center (CEC) empowers all undergraduate students to strategically explore their career and academic options.

We assist students in gathering information, personal insight, and experiences that:

  • are based on their interests, values, and skills
  • help them explore their options
  • provide direction in planning the next steps in their career journey

At the CEC, we respect, value, and celebrate the diversity of all UW-Madison students. We strive to make every student feel welcome, safe, and included. By committing ourselves to supporting and advocating for students of all identities, we hope to help foster a healthy campus environment where students can explore academic interests, make decisions about majors and careers, and reach their full potential.
