DU Career & Professional Development announced faculty career champions
For the past four years, The University of Denver Career & Professional Development office has asked students which faculty members have made a significant contribution to their career and professional development path. This year more than 400 students nominated 247 unique Faculty Career Champions.
Jack Buffington, program director and assistant professor of the practice in supply chain management, received the Undergraduate Faculty Career Champion Award. Buffington had several nominations stating that he integrates career development into the classroom and has many career-related conversations with students throughout the academic year.
“I’m starting off my dream company and dream job all because of you,” said Catharen Stuebe (BSBA 2020).
“He helped me reach my professional goals,” said Trevor Waltz (BSBA 2020). “He helped me craft my resume and practice my interview skills.”

Numerous Daniels faculty members were nominated for this award. But, Buffington was a true standout this year.
“Jack has been a great faculty partner and brought countless students – walked them into the Career Services Office to connect them to career coaches,” said Bob Kumagai, executive director of Daniels Career Services. “He has really been a strong advocate for our students.”
