Request a Workshop
Any student group on campus may request that the CDC conduct a workshop for them. Please provide at least 10 business days’ notice in order for us to facilitate a workshop; we’ll do our best to accommodate all requests.
In order to request a workshop, you’ll have to complete a workshop request form through TechSync. Please check the CDC’s list of upcoming programs to make sure the date/time you plan to request doesn’t conflict with an existing workshop or event.
Request CDC Grants to Fund a Career-Related Event for your Student Organization
The CDC offers grants to help student organizations fund programs and events that involve educational and networking opportunities and career and professional development. Eligibility for the grant requires that any and all students will be welcome to attend the workshop, and that the CDC must be listed as a sponsor in all marketing materials. Access the CDC Grant form and apply today.
