Where We Are

Our staff team will be working both on-campus and remotely. In our spring 2021 survey asking for your preferences on programs, services and 1:1 appointments with counselors, you clearly told us you wanted options. We will therefore continue to offer both in-person and Zoom meetings. Your wish is our command! 

On-campus, you can find us in two locations: Canham House (146 Wood Street, left) and in Ladd/ARC.

Check out our drop-in schedule (above) – these are blocks of time where our Purposeful Work Fellows and Staff members are open and available to help you with resumes, cover letters, job + internship search, or just to chat about all the resources PW has to offer you. And even if you don’t have any specific questions yet, please stop by – we’d love to meet you!
