Careers in Aging Week

CIAW banner

April 2017 is UMBC’s Career Crush, a month-long initiative that brings the UMBC campus community together to provide both undergraduate and graduate students with opportunities to develop their professional skills and explore career options. In conjunction with Career Crush, the Erickson School is sponsoring a Careers in Aging week, April 3-8th. The goal is to connect students to “Fields of Opportunities” with learning opportunities, networking with Erickson School Alumni, and other experiences associated with professions that are impacted by aging adults.
