At Clayton State University, we believe that our core business is learning—learning by students, and continuous learning by faculty and staff. That faculty and staff learning is continuous, and is done on behalf of our students and the communities we serve. Student learning reflects our broad commitment to help cultivate effective citizens—prepared for tomorrow’s workplace, and participating in the communities that create and support those work places. Through EDGE, our students will be given systematic advice and experiences that can transform university learning into skills, knowledge and perspectives that will bring value to present and future employers and jobs. Students will understand ways in which what they learn in class can bring value to the US and perhaps even the world economy—the jobs and careers of tomorrow. EDGE translates what students learn in classes and external experiences (such as internships and community engagements) into understanding the value the student and graduate will bring to the market place. Please take advantage of the opportunities to which you will be exposed in the EDGE program.
