CDC could relocate to Tyler Haynes Commons, officials say

University of Richmond officials are mulling over the idea of relocating the Career Development Center to a more central location on campus, a move that would afford additional space for student job interviews, other career services and increase accessibility. In a statement released to The Collegian late last night, Brian Eckert, director of the university's media and public relations, said the CDC would remain at its current location at least for the remainder of the academic year, which ran counter to widespread rumors stating that construction in the Tyler Haynes Commons ? where the CDC was to be located ? would begin as early next week. Plans for moving the CDC to the Commons have been discussed but have yet to be approved, the statement said.
