Welcome to the OSPGD F&Mily!

Dear Family Members:

The Office of Student & Post-Graduate Development looks forward to supporting your students during and after their time at Franklin & Marshall.  We will help them identify, explore and compete for extraordinary opportunities, and support them after they graduate through ongoing career advising, progressive programs and on-demand resources to sustain them in fulfilling career trajectories.  We welcome you to partner with us in this work with your experience, insights about and credibility with your students.  

One of the important ways you can help us support your students is to encourage them to connect with us early and often.  For students who have ideas about desired career pathways, we can connect them to resources, professionals and opportunities along those pathways.  For those who do not have ideas about potential career pathways, we can help them "try on" pathways through externships, internships, alumni connections and other resources specific to their interests.  The more exposure the students have to us and vice versa, the more effective a partner we can be in preparing them to launch into their lives after graduation and support them in the years which follow.

Additionally, information for Parents and Families can be found here.   OSPGD's calendar details many of our events and programs for students and alumni. 

Thank you in advance for your support of and dedication to students and alumni.  If you have any questions about our services, or suggestions about how we can improve what we do, please do not hesitate to contact me.
