The Najim Center for Innovation and Career Advancement
The Najim center serves as a hub offering programming aimed at ensuring that UTSA students in all majors are able to develop career pathways and leverage experiential learning opportunities that hone their career readiness skills. Students gain direct experience with issues affecting their community and knowledge on how to connect that back to their classroom studies.
We engage students in classroom to career exploration through creating experiential learning opportunities throughout the UTSA campus and within the community. We support these activities in developing intentional programming and services while building capacity for the transition from student to career.
We will improve career/professional outcomes and community engagement by designing an ecosystem that connects academic, business, and civic communities.
Our Core Values
We embrace diversity, transparent communication and mutual respect in our programs and services to enhance educational, career, and community engagement outcomes.
Student and Alumni Centered
We educate students and alumni to focus on career and professional school preparation by creating opportunities to develop social agency to build social capital in a diverse global community.
We apply asset based and market driven data to foster creative inquiry and discovery with our collaborative partnerships.
