Structure

CDC works under a Director at the University level who manages all the CDC activities. The Director is assisted by Career Liaison Officers (CLOs) at departmental level. Each department has a designated CLO who works as an interface for students to communicate with CDC and also help the Director in various capacities. In each department, the CLO is supported by CLO ambassadors, who are students, one from each batch of currently enrolled students. Therefore, each department has four CLO ambassadors working with the respective CLO, mainly through dissemination of CDC information.
