Beyond Career Services


​As part of its mission to provide a world-class liberal arts education that empowers students to pursue their dreams and goals for life, Franklin & Marshall has transformed the traditional concept of "career services" by creating the Office of Student and Post-Graduate Development (OSPGD), which engages students beginning in their first year with programs on financial literacy, public speaking, leadership development and advisement on field and industry exploration, and continues to support them through and beyond their time at F&M by helping them compete for summer and post-graduate opportunities no matter which pathway and career they choose. 


 OSPGD prepares students for their lives and careers beyond college and continues to support them as alumni by:

  • Helping them explore and clarify potential career pathways;

  • Exposing them to extraordinary opportunities;

  • Preparing them to compete for the opportunities they seek; and

  • Helping them sustain trajectories of success beyond college.
