“Periodically, career center directors ask us for assistance in making the case for the CSO System to their senior administration and other key influencers on campus. As the purpose and benefits of career services are not always widely understood at all levels and in all departments across campus, we work to provide insight into the critical importance of effectively providing career services. Following is our executive summary case statement. Please feel free to use and adapt it to your specific campus needs.”
