Robb Center for Career Exploration

Trustee Dell Williamson and wife Barbara Williamson have made gifts in support of the project, as well. The Center will be located in the stone house across the street from the main entrance into campus. The Career Services Office, now located in the Carson Library, will move to the Center once renovations are complete. The establishment of the Center exemplifies Lees-McRae’s commitment to supporting internship and career placement opportunities for our students.
