With direction and advice from the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee, the Center for Career Development created the Black Students Affinity Community. This community’s goal is to provide resources to support students who self-identify within the African Diaspora heritage and culture.
Black students and alumni encounter unique challenges throughout the career development and job search processes and in the workplace. As a follower of the Black Students affinity community, you will get timely alerts on relevant resources, news and advice, and events. The Career Center is committed to advocating and supporting Black students and alumni as they navigate the intersection of career and identity.
