Success is a Valpo Tradition

A Valpo education is built on three pillars: career-focused majors, student-focused faculty, and experience-focused learning opportunities. Why? Because it works. More than 97 percent of recent Valpo undergraduates are employed or in graduate school. And they’re building their careers in more than 35 states and 15 countries.

Success Starts with a Handshake

Handshake is the Career Center’s career management platform. It links you to powerful career development resources and an extensive job and internship database. And you have access for life.


Experience Makes Success Sustainable

Valpo’s employment/grad school rate has been above 90 percent for 26 straight years! That includes the 2001 recession and the “Great Recession” of 2008. That’s the power of Valpo’s experiential learning model. It works even when the economy doesn’t.
