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).

OSPGD engages students via a variety of  programs and continues to support them through and beyond their time at F&M.  Regardless of when F&M alumni graduate, they can turn to OSPGD for free advising, professional development, networking opportunities and programs.


 OSPGD helps F&M students and alumni:

  • Recognize and articulate their unique strengths, challenges and experiences

  • Identify and secure opportunities congruent with their identities, values and goals

  • Navigate and negotiate the expectations of the changing world of work and life

In so doing, OSPGD supports F&M’s mission of fostering in its students and alumni self-authorship of meaningful lives and social impact.

How can OSPGD help you?

Engaging with the F&Mily

  • Engagement of unique students

How do we know we are offering the type of guidance and programming that our students and alumni want and need?

A telling measure is their ongoing engagement through 1:1 meetings with OSPGD’s advisers, workshop attendance, usage of online resources, alumni mentorship (of students and graduates) and alumni-delivered programs.
