Undocumented Students

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

Undocumented students and alumni encounter unique challenges throughout the career development and job search processes and in the workplace. As a follower of the Undocumented 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 Undocumented students and alumni as they navigate the intersection of career and identity.
