History

Since 1974, the University of Missouri has been involved in providing career development assistance to its students. The MU Career Center was conceived by a professor of Educational and Counseling Psychology and two graduate students, and existed as a simple self-help center with a few books at the Counseling Center.

Currently, the MU Career Center resides in the Student Success Center and continues to focus on assisting all MU students with their career exploration and development. For more than 40 years we have built our services on a firm foundation of research and best practices in career development and counseling psychology. We plan to continue to build on this foundation, developing collaborations and enhancing our programs, as we deliver our services to campus and the local community.

Career Services at Mizzou

The MU Career Center is a member of the MU Career Services Council, a network comprised of career services offices at the University of Missouri and their professional staff. The Council serves as a gateway for students to experiential education, post-graduate employment and advanced degree work. The network is a coordinated body addressing policy and practice in matters of career service, employment and post-graduate opportunities.
