The Transformative Ten (T10) is a series of ten events designed to help students connect the major to prospective career options in preparation for life after Monmouth. This initiative is a direct response to student perceptions and concerns with exploring majors and career opportunities. It brings together current and new programming for a complete portfolio of activities. Please look for this logo on flyers and announcements via the MU portal and social media as the events are offered.
What is the T10 and how does it work?
T10 events are available to all students. Students who attend and sign in at T10 events during the academic year are invited to a capstone dinner, hosted in the spring, with a keynote speaker on employment/industry trends and networking opportunities. Faculty are also invited and sponsor a student. If interested, please contact Anthony Urmey, Director of Transfer Student Services and Undeclared Services (firstname.lastname@example.org).
What about other existing events?
Department and/or school-sponsored events are extremely valuable for our students and we invite you to join the Transformative 10 lineup for cross promotion and student participation. Please contact Jeff Mass, Assistant Director of Career Services (email@example.com) to connect.
