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.

Engaging with the F&Mily
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.
