Breaking Ground, Building Future Connections

The Career Connections Center serves as the bridge from the educational experience to the work world for University of Florida students. To continue to provide nationally recognized services to students, employers, and campus partners, enhanced facilities are needed. With renovated and additional space, the Career Connections Center would be able to meet the demand of hosting more students and employers while continuing to fulfill our mission of educating and creating connections.
