Be Inspired. Generate Ideas. Test Possibilities. Find Your Purpose. Make a Plan. Design Your Future.

The Lazarus Center prepares students for meaningful undergraduate and postgraduate opportunities and helps them develop decision-making skills to use during college, in their careers and throughout life.

Smith’s ambitious students deserve exceptional career preparation. We don’t want students to simply pick a job. Our “By Design” vision for career development encompasses highly customized programs that enable students to imagine and create a career that fulfills their passions, fits their life goals and manifests the Smith spirit of doing well to do good in the world.
