Mary Jane Shroyer is the director of the Health Professionals Career Community Center for Careers, Life, and Service (CLS) at Grinnell College. She will be joining the UnityPoint Health – Grinnell Regional Medical Center Foundation’s Senior Education Program on Monday, September 23.
Shroyer will present how the CLS provides students with information and opportunities to identify and engage their personal, professional and civic aspirations. Shroyer will share how Grinnell College has redesigned career services to encourage students to explore these ambitions early in their undergraduate educations and receive industry-focused advice and experience through the college’s Career Communities model.
