Message from the Director

Francisco LucioGreetings, College Community Members!

In July of 2012, I was hired to develop and launch the Career Development Center (CDC). Since then, I have spent hours getting to know the student body, residents, faculty and others and have met bright and talented individuals who will certainly shape not only the optometry field, but our society in a positive way.

My goal is to help craft personal individual career plans for students, residents and alumni as no two experiences and career trajectories are alike. Moreover, I plan to create opportunities for engagement so that individuals have an opportunity to refine and develop leadership, communication and other interpersonal skills invaluable to career success. These opportunities will come in the form of workshops, sessions, networking events, and our signature programs.

The CDC is a resource for the entire College community whether you are a first year student or you graduated many years ago. I look forward to getting to know you and being a part of your career development.


Francisco Lucio, JD
Director of Career Development and Minority Enrichment
