Hello and welcome to the ADVANCE website.  

I am proud to be a part of  one of the most prominent student organizations on the  University of Cincinnati’s  campus as we have such great history coupled with great leaders. Established in 1986, ADVANCE is a professional development organization under the auspices of the  Career Development Center. Our mission is to empower students to reach their highest levels of self-realization through a diverse, professional experience.We push ourselves to become leaders of tomorrow through hosting trainings and events such as our Annual Networking  Reception, Corporate Excursion, Resume Writing, Networking workshop, Mock Interviews, and more!

Our corporate partners play a huge role in our success as many have hosted our team at their corporate offices, held trainings, provided career placement assistance, provided financial support and mentorship. This year, corporate partners hosted us at their offices in New York City, New York, over 50 employers are attending our Network Reception, supporting our Survivor Scholarship Competition and much more!

If you’re interested in hearing more about ADVANCE whether you are a student, alum, or an employer, please do not hesitate to contact the ADVANCE Executive Board at advanceboard [at] gmail [dot] com. Your questions, comments, and your ideas are welcomed.  We look forward to hosting you at one of our events and having your support in helping us "Better our Best."
