A College Committed to Your Success

The Curry Commitment is a job guarantee program for full-time undergraduate students. This four-year program prepares students to enter the workforce seamlessly after graduation by integrating career readiness programming and experiential learning opportunities into the undergraduate experience.

Through this program, students will receive support and services that prepare them to take the next steps towards their career shortly after graduation. Some of those resources include:

  • Experiential learning through an internship in a related field or research project
  • Career counseling
  • Resume and cover letter workshops
  • Interview skills training
  • Job search support

The Curry Commitment will retroactively apply to current first-year students (Class of 2027) and the College will publicly report on program outcomes.

The program will be built around competencies outlined by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), emphasizing career and self-development, communication, critical thinking, equity and inclusion, leadership, professionalism, teamwork, and technology.
