• Student Engagement

    LaGuardia students come from more than 145 different countries and speak almost 100 native languages, yet their determination to create a stronger future for themselves and their families through higher education is a dream they all share. By partnering with the Center for Career and Professional Development, you can engage and connect with these students while providing a launch pad to success.
