Concordia University, St. Paul Office of Career Development (CSP) adheres to the NACE Principles for Professional Practice for Career Services and Employment Professionals and expects employers to do the same. These principles are available on the National Association of Colleges and Employers website.


Employers are expected to maintain a positive, collaborative working relationship with CSP staff. That includes cooperation with CSP policies and procedures, meeting necessary deadlines to ensure smooth operation of on-campus interview visits, providing the job / company information and data requested, providing hire data as requested, complying with the legal obligations of recruiters, and maintaining the confidentiality of student data as outlined in the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). Employers that violate FERPA regulations will lose access to CSP services for five years, as stated in the regulations.


All employer representatives are expected to support CSP policies in all interactions with students. Of course, the CSP management team welcomes employer feedback and input on those policies at any time. Employers that are unable to comply with these policies may wish to use other recruiting resources, such as newspaper advertisements, commercial job boards, or third-party agencies.


CSP holds the right to discontinue access to students for any reason.

Concordia University, St. Paul Office of Career Development is committed to equal employment opportunity for all persons and provides services to our students and employers on a nondiscriminatory basis. We expect all employers to comply with U.S. and state employment laws and we recommend including an EEO statement with all job descriptions.
