VIP Professional Development

The VIP Professional Development program is a new Colorado School of Mines initiative designed to improve Mines students’ professional skills.

The Colorado School of Mines focuses on six competencies to differentiate our students from other universities. These competencies include: communication, career self-management, professionalism, collaboration, successful thinking, and equity and inclusion.

The VIP Professional Development program provides resources for students to become the professional that every employer wants to hire! Follow the link below to learn more about the program’s competencies, events, and goals.


The Colorado School of Mines Career Center is committed to embracing the inclusion and diversity of our campus community, thereby creating equal opportunity for everyone.  We feel that acknowledging, respecting, and promoting each student and graduate, with their distinctive combination of age, sex, gender (including gender identity and gender expression), race, ethnicity, religion, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, veteran status or military service, and socioeconomic background, brings a creative, innovative and valued new workforce to our family of employers.

Those with accessibility needs, concerns or requests are encouraged to contact L. Jane Cain at 303-273-3233, lcain@mines.edu.
