Careers for the Common Good

Exposing students to socially-responsible vocations in industries ranging from public service & non-profits, to benefit-corporations & social enterprises.

Careers for the Common Good works to bring together students and values-driven organizations who desire to create positive change in society. We do this through both programming and the annual Careers for the Common Good Career Fair.

Careers for the Common Good is a collaborative program of the Center for Career Development, the Office of Community Outreach, Programs, Services, and Initiatives, and the Human Rights Institute.
