Preparing our first graduates for their next step, Times Higher Education, 30 July 2017

Times Higher Education published a blog post by Trisha Craig, Dean of International and Professional Experience on how the College prepared its inaugural cohort of graduates for their post-college pursuits.

PA pitched and facilitated this blog post to Times Higher Education.
