Disclosure of student information outside the college/university should only be made with your prior consent unless health and safety considerations necessitate the distribution of such information.Freedom of Choice- Students are entitled to be assisted by the career staff in developing a career plan and making career decisions without having staff members’ biases or personal values imposed upon them.Access to Services and Events- Career centres may charge students for registering or taking part in certain services or events. Such fees should be sufficiently nominal so as not to hinder students from participating.Access to Career Information- All students, regardless of personal or educational background, should be provided with full and equal access to information on career opportunities and types of employing organizations. A Career Centre is also expected to inform students how and where to obtain information which may influence their decisions about an employing organization.Testing Information- A Career Centre should inform students of the availability of career and personality testing, the purpose of the tests, and the disclosure policies regarding test results.MissionCo-operative Education & Career Services supports, trains and leads students and alumni as they make career and further education planning decisions.ObjectivesProvide students with job search skillsAssist students to discern career or further education planningProvide experiential learning and employment opportunitiesValuesRespectCollaborationIntegrityCommitment to ExcellenceCreativityStudent AffairsCo-operative Education & Career Services (CECS) is part of Student Affairs at the University of Guelph.
