URI Career & Experiential Data Insights

Center for Career & Experiential Education

The Center for Career & Experiential Education (CCEE) supports student success through engagement in high quality personal and professional experiences. Because we honor identity, center equity, and value differing experiences, we strive to provide inclusive teaching, advising, programming, and resources. By building trust with faculty and staff we support individualized approaches to integrating career, civic, and experiential learning into curriculum. Through active reciprocal relationships with employer and community partners, we develop an impressive workforce talent pipeline that contributes to the Rhode Island economy, community, and beyond.

Career Advising in CCEE is organized by major cluster and students are mapped by major on Starfish from year one to a Career Education Specialist (CES).
