Hello Hawkeyes! Today we are spotlighting Brock Cavett (BA ‘19 Communication Studies, MA ‘19 Higher Education and Student Affairs).

Cavett is originally from Davenport, Iowa, and is currently working as the director of young alumni engagement at the University of California Riverside.

He loves that he is able to work with college students, and have an impact on their lives by connecting them with alumni in their field.

Cavett says that Career Leadership Academy (CLA) was an important part of his college experience and has helped him be successful in his career.

“CLA helped me get to where I am today because it taught me valuable skills needed to lead a team with empathy,” Cavett says. “I owe a lot of my success in advising and supervising to the skills and experiences that I gained in the Career Leadership Academy.”

CLA taught Cavett life skills that he wouldn’t have learned otherwise, and is very grateful he had the opportunity to take the course.

“I still regularly communicate with my instructor,” Cavett says. “CLA will always hold a special place in my heart.”
