Identity-Based Resources

Expand and Explore the Possibilities.

We constantly strive to expand our awareness and understanding of career and workplace issues that affect our students. We recognize that the various perspectives and backgrounds that enrich our community may influence career development. Our purpose, in an open and affirming environment, is to:

  • Provide support and information.

  • Help students expand and explore career path possibilities.

  • Create a counseling environment that is conducive to discussing any career-related issue.

  • Maintain a student-counselor collaborative relationship.
