Faculty & Staff
Experiential learning powers our students’ education. Our team works closely with faculty and staff in every academic department ensuring that students have access to even more opportunities to connect their curriculum to their future careers.
We work to bring representatives from influential organizations to campus as guest speakers, case study clients, and mentors. These industry professionals participate alongside faculty and staff in our Career Communities, industry-themed groups that help students explore all that they can do with their Suffolk degrees. And year after year, these top employers are eager to extend internship and job offers to our career-ready students.
Please get in touch to see how we can help your students put their knowledge to work.

Focus2 is an online career and education planning system based on established career and counseling principles. It provides a complete picture of student interests, values, personality, skills, and leisure activities using self-assessment questionnaires, interest inventories, and personality testing.
(Faculty can provide this info to their students) For student access please see the following instructions: Register for a student account on Focus2. New users simply click on the REGISTER button to be brought to the self-registration page. First students will need to enter the access code, RAMS, and then they can create their own unique username and password. Once they submit the form, a Focus 2 account will be activated for them and they will be brought directly into the system. Each time they return to use Focus 2, they simply enter their username and password on the login page.
For faculty and staff administrative access, please reach out to Hayley Conard. This will allow you to create a group of students in your course who have registered for the assessment. You will be able to see their results, and you can also take the assessment yourself through a “student view” feature.
