With direction and advice from the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee, the Center for Career Development created the Latinx Affinity Community. This community’s goal is to provide resources that are focused on supporting students who self-identify with Latinx.

Latinx students and alumni encounter unique challenges throughout the career development and job search processes and in the workplace. As a follower of the Latinx community, you will get timely alerts on relevant resources, news and advice, and events. The Career Center is committed to advocating and supporting Latinx students and alumni as they navigate the intersection of career and identity.
