Abstract
This thesis examines how concepts of career development and student engagement are reflected at a comprehensive Canadian university. This is done through a review of the research literature on career development and student engagement and retention, and through the application of a critical policy lens to analyze specific initiatives at Simon Fraser University (SFU). Given that issues related to work and future careers are the primary reasons for individuals pursuing higher education, the specific focus of this thesis is on the possible intersection between career education and student engagement and how this might contribute to developing students who are more engaged while at SFU and better prepared for life after SFU.
