The Porter Family Professional Development Center builds lasting relationships with students by offering support and coaching throughout the student’s academic and professional journey in the Martha and Spencer Love School of Business. We offer consultative one-on-one meetings with students to create an action plan that will help each student secure the internship or job that best suits their career goals. We also host custom workshops for student groups, provide daily drop-in hours, and work closely with the Student Professional Development Center (SPDC) to ensure business talent have access to a variety of recruitment options, including on-campus interviews.
The Porter Center and SPDC are proud to be recognized as a Top 10 Career Services office in the country by the Princeton Review.
The Porter Center is located on the first floor of the Ernest A. Koury Sr. Business Center, room 106.

Love School of Business Professionalism Statement
The Love School of Business expects students to represent themselves in a professional manner at all times, in accordance with the values of Elon University’s Honor Code: honesty, integrity, responsibility, and respect. This includes communicating professionally with all faculty, staff, alumni, and company representatives; honoring all commitments at school and with external professional pursuits; and behaving ethically and honestly. We believe these tenets are essential to building a positive professional reputation.
