About the CEC

The Career Exploration Center (CEC) supports undergraduate students who are exploring their major, career, and/or academic goals.

We assist student in gathering information, personal insight, and experiences that:

  • are based on their interests, values, and skills
  • help them explore their options
  • provide direction in planning the next steps in their career journey

At the CEC, we respect, value, and celebrate the diversity of all UW-Madison students. We strive to make every student feel welcome, safe, and included. By committing ourselves to supporting and advocating for students of all identities, we hope to help foster a healthy campus environment where students can explore academic interests, make decisions about majors and careers, and reach their full potential.
