CCPD Supports Black Students!
Black lives matter.
Southwestern’s Center for Career and Professional Development stands with Black students and alumni, and wants to support these members of the Southwestern community in their professional development. We have curated some resources specifically to help Black students and professionals in job searches and navigating the workplace.
There are additional resources on our Internet Links page, under Resources for Diverse Job Seekers, and any student is welcome to contact the CCPD for personal advice and assistance with professional development.
