I wasn't particularly wedded to the name Student Development, but one of the reasons that I've not liked the name Careers Service is that it's a fairly narrow and traditional term and we aren't really either of those things. Student Development at the University of Leicester comprises a wide range of services that we have summarised under three key themes, helping students to:
- succeed in their studies
- gain experience
- develop a career
So the question is, given that the name has been decided, how do we communicate it effectively?There are two reactions I'm trying to avoid:
- Where's Student Development gone?
- I didn't know the Careers Service offered support with that!

All comments gratefully received. I've partly blogged this to try and re-gain a sense of perspective on the issue. I'm hoping you can help.
