About Career Planning & Placement Service
The Atlanta University Center Consortium Career Planning and Placement Service (AUCC CPPS) operates under the umbrella of the Office of Academic and Career Services (OACS). The AUCC CPPS is committed to providing the student body of the member institutions (Clark Atlanta University, Morehouse College, and Spelman College) with access to resources to facilitate experiential learning such as internships, co-operative, research opportunities, as well as access to permanent career opportunities. The AUCC CPPS coordinates on-campus recruiting which includes, but, is not limited to career planning events for those outside entities who are interested in recruiting from more than one of our member institutions.
The Consortium serves as a centralized body through which corporations, non-profit organizations, government entities and graduate and professional schools can interact with AUC Consortium students for the purpose of hiring and the pursuit of post-graduate admission.
The Consortium sponsors annual recruitment fairs; included but not limited to career; graduate, professional school, law school, education/teacher recruitment and alumni career fairs. All fairs and on-campus recruiting activities (with the exception of interview schedules) are open to active students (undergraduate and graduate) and alumni.
The Consortium sponsors annual Career, Graduate, and Professional School Fairs, which are open to all students and alumni of its member institutions.
Over the past four decades, the AUC Consortium CPPS current students as well as alumni have expressed how the assistance received from the collaborative partnership between the AUCC CPPS and our member institutions’ career services centers has assisted them with developing foundation needed in order to realize their career and educational goals.
- All majors and classifications of students interview through AUC Consortium CPPS with the exception of the Clark Atlanta University MBA Placement Program and current students of Morehouse School of Medicine, which operate separately.
