Specialized Advising Programs

  • CWI offers the Personal Academic and Career Enhancement (PACE) program to provide additional advising and career services for students. This program is especially helpful for the undecided student, the underprepared student, and the student struggling academically.
  • The CWI Center for New Directions (CND) is designed to support students that have recently faced a significant life change. CND reaches out to students who are changing careers after being laid off from their current work, single parents or displaced homemakers, and students who are working in a field that is traditionally held by the opposite gender.
  • The Career and College Transfer Center (CCTC) is designed to assist current CWI students in identifying and preparing for the steps they will be taking after finishing here.
