We invite you to join us on Thursday, January 26th at 1pm (ET) to hear Chris Meaner (Director, Career Services) discuss how Pitt Business is leveraging Suitable's web and mobile platform to boost co-curricular involvement, scaffold competency development, and foster more employer engagement with their students. There is no cost to attend and a post-event recording will be sent out to all those who register.

Chris is a Higher Education thought leader when it comes to Student Development Theory. So it's no surprise that his student engagement program, "The Pitt Business Outside the Classroom Curriculum (PB OCC)", is helping Pitt Business students succeed from the moment the get to campus until their first destination after graduation. Chris's expertise, combined with his focus on employer engagement, has helped the college climb to new heights in recent business school rankings. Whether it's scaffolding student engagement through the development of 10 core competencies, implementing Employer Badges to directly align workforce expectations with students' involvement, or analyzing the data to improve outcomes, Chris continues to find innovative ways to improve the value offered to students.

This event will provide:

  • A review of core Student Development Theory principles and how to implement them in practice.
  • An overview of his student engagement program, The Pitt Business Outside the Classroom Curriculum (PB OCC).
  • A look at how he's incorporating recruiters into the PB OCC with his Employer Badging initiative.
  • A quick walkthrough of key Suitable capabilities.
  • A live Q&A with presenters.
