ABOUT RACDA

OUR MISSION~
To inspire and support career educators through collaboration, partnerships, and responsive professional development.

The Rochester Area Career Development Association (RACDA) was chartered in 1989 to support the collaborative efforts of career development professionals from area colleges and universities. At that time, the Association’s focus was on planning and implementing events such as Teacher Recruitment Day, Graduate School Days, and the Rochester Area Colleges Alumni Networking Event.

Today, RACDA is focused on addressing the professional development needs of its members while serving students and employers through recruiting events such as Teacher Recruitment Day and other institution hosted internship and career fairs.

RACDA and its programs are made possible through the professional collaboration of its dedicated member individuals.
