We in the Career Development Center (CDC), want to echo the sentiment that was recently shared in President Leshin’s email on June 1st. We acknowledge that racism and systemic oppression are both historical and ongoing contemporary injustices that exist in all levels of our society, including throughout the career journey. Black lives matter, and we must recognize and act on this truth in the work that we do with students, alumni, and employers.
We have included new resources in our CDC Resource Library for students of color. You can find that information, and all of our career-related tipsheets, here. We are also continuing to explore new programs and initiatives to meet the needs of our students of color in collaboration with the Office of Multicultural Affairs. Be on the lookout for updates later this fall.
