“One of the goals of Illinois State’s Career Center is to assist students with their career and educational goals,” said Maureen Roach, Career Center senior assistant director for Programming and Events. “The Graduate School Series educates students about graduate school so they have what they need to make a well-informed decision about additional learning and if graduate school is for them. Students can also visit the Career Center for additional advice and support from a professional career advisor anytime during their decision process.

“After all, when students consider graduate school they’re not just making an educational choice, they’re making a significant investment in their future. And we’re here to help,” Roach added.
