Who We Serve

We work with all degree-seeking students enrolled in the College of Liberal Arts, Twin Sites. We also help recent CLA alumni up to one year after their graduation. We're also the pre-law advising office for all students who attend the U of M, Twin Cities.

Beyond students, we work with employers and recruiters (to help students find jobs and explore careers), and with U of M faculty and staff.

CLA Student Services is committed to providing a comfortable, inclusive, and respectful environment for all members of our communities. If you have accommodation needs, comments or questions related toa accessing our services, please let a member of our staff know.

Students can browse materials about CLA majors, career options, and graduate school options. Students can get free resume critiques whenever individual assistance is available. The Resource Room offers educational materials focused on the job search, resumes, interviews, and preparation to transition from students to working professionals.
