Cloninger to lead PSU Career Services Office

Pittsburg State University Vice President for University Advancement Brad Hodson has announced the appointment of Mindy Cloninger as the new director of career services. The office of career services provides a wide range of services for students and potential employers.

"Mindy, with her 10 years of service in career services at another university, will join an already talented and experienced staff," Hodson said. "Together, this team will be a strong force in spreading the word about Pittsburg State and its students."

Cloninger said she was looking forward to joining the Career Services team.

"I have been familiar with the outstanding PSU Career Services operation for many years and am excited to become part of this important effort," Cloninger said. "Many alumni have told me over the years what a great job Pittsburg State does preparing our students for the workforce. We will continue to partner with students, faculty, alumni and employers to help ensure Pitt State students’ future success."

Since 2004, Cloninger has served the university as director of alumni relations. She received a bachelor’s degree in psychology and master’s degree in counseling from PSU.

Prior to joining the staff in PSU’s Alumni Relations Office in 1999, Cloninger worked for 10 years in the Rockhurst University Career Center. She was associate director and a career counselor from 1989 until 1997. From 1997 until 1999, she was director of academic advising for the School of Professional Studies and also director of the career center.

Cloninger lives in Pittsburg with her husband, Craig, and sons Jake and Hank.
