The University of South Carolina Salkehatchie Leadership Institute, in partnership with the USC Salkehatchie Student Services department, is embarking on an exciting new venture - the creation of a Career Services Center that will function to both prepare and to place our students in workplace settings.

USC Salkehatchie is one of the partnership institutions in the WORC grant program, funded by the Department of Energy and the National Nuclear Security Administration. As a centerpiece of this grant, we are partnering with USC Aiken to develop a 2+2 Industrial Process Engineering program. Students in this program will need to complete co-op experiences to work with professionals in their chosen field of study.

This presents the perfect opportunity to develop a comprehensive plan to develop workplace and soft skills and career placement services for these and other students that are served by USC Salkehatchie.

Savannah River Nuclear Solutions has awarded a grant in the amount of $25,000 to support the establishment of the career center at USC Salkehatche.  This funding will enable USC Salkehatchie to create the center and provide training and support for staff that will provide these career services as well as transportation to various career events through the USC system.
