Task forces study career goals
What students can do when they
graduate, what jobs they can get, and
what preparation is necessary are
questions important to many students,
said Ken Bader, vice chancellor for
student affairs.
According to Janet Krause, counselor
at the UNL Counseling Center, many
students come to the Counseling Center
because they are discouraged, confused
and often frightened about the future.
Last year, Krause and Larry Doerr of
UMHE-Commonplace, met with inter
ested UNL faculty and staff members to
discuss these concerns and seek pos
sible answers, Krause said.
Eventually, after several meetings
involving about 40 UNL faculty and staff
members, a Career Concerns Group and
eight task forces were formed, she said.
Career possibilities
The task forces were formed with
emphasis on different career possibili
ties. The eight task forces don't
represent all the career problems
students may face, but they are the
major ones, Krause said.
"There is a need to provide focusing
that will provide an effective career
planning program," Bader said. "It is
very important for UNL to do more in
the career planning field than has been
The proposal of a Career Action
Commission has been supported by all
the vice chancellors, Bader said.
Next Monday, the proposal will be
delivered to the Council of Deans,
Krause said.
"There we will solicit the support of
the deans for input on the commission
from the various-departments, '' Bader
There will be 15 appointments to the
commission from involved qroups,
Krause said. She added that 20 faculty
members were contacted about serving
on the commission and almost an
'Active-doing body'
According to Krause. Ihe Career
Action Commission will be "an active
body -a doing body."
The commission will be based on
available career resources, she said.
"The faculty and staff are a rich, rich
resource in terms of outside experience
and we hope students will be able to
establish relationships with faculty
members outside the classroom,"
Krause said.
She said most of the faculty members
are willing to help students with career
According to Krause, the short-term
goals of the Career Action Commission
are to establish formal avenues of
communication between faculty and
staff members as to the career needs of
students, to establish a campus-wide
Career Week next spring and to develop
the task forces.
The improved communication would
help identify and involve faculty and
staff members who are interested in
improving the university's response to
the career needs of the students, she
According to Krause, a Career Week
would provide an open avenue to the
businesses for students, while giving an
opportunity to NU alumni and the;
Lincoln business community to become
Involved in the career action program. ,
