2019-2020 Student Technology Fee Awardees

Symplicity Career Services Manager (CSM). The goal of this project is to provide SLU students with a career and internship management system. Symplicity is an all-encompassing system that will allow students to make appointments with the career specialist for all the career services that are available to them (ex. interview preparation, professional resume writing, networking advice/ strategies, career transition and development exploration etc.). The system will allow SLU to keep track of meetings, write confidential notes, and have an overall understanding of students’ immediate concerns and needs so the School can create resources and tailor services based on these needs. For more information, contact in Student Affairs.

Digital Portfolio Project. The goal of this project is to create a digital portfolio system for students at SLU. Digital portfolios have been shown to both enhance student engagement and aid in job searches. This project will create a template for more widespread use of digital portfolios at SLU. For more information, contact in the Writing Center.
