Embedding Career Learning Across the Curriculum

May 8, 2023

At a Glance

How can two-year colleges ensure that all students can access quality career navigation opportunities that inform their studies and position them for meaningful, family-sustaining work? That is the challenge being addressed at Boston’s Bunker Hill Community College through a college-wide initiative known as Ethnographies of Work (EoW). The initiative was inspired by a related innovation at Guttman College, City University of New York, adapted to Bunker Hill’s student population and institutional structure, and is currently being implemented in more than 60 courses serving approximately 900 students.
