The Career Center provides career services formulated to support students of all sexual
orientations/identities and gender/gender expressions. We offer women resources and
advice to help guide them in their career development and within the workplace.
We recognize, respect, and integrate students’ diverse backgrounds, identities, experiences,
and perspectives into quality career development and planning. Our events, resources,
and opportunities are designed to ensure that all students have equal access, regardless
of culture, national origin, race/ethnicity, religion, disability, sexual orientation/identity,
and gender/gender expression. Students who identify with particular groups can have
unique challenges when choosing a major or career, interviewing for positions, and
transitioning into the work world.
In addition to the resources below, career counselors/advisors are available to answer
questions and provide guidance.
The Women’s Resources Program exists as the central contact for resources and support for women on campus. The
Women’s Resources Program in the Center for Student Diversity is responsible for coordinating
campus programming that addresses the unique needs of female college students, providing
a space for all students to discuss issues of gender, and building the leadership
capacity of female students. The Women's Resources Program offers a safe space on
campus where women of all ages, physical conditions, sexual identities, spiritual
beliefs, and ethnic origins can realize their full potential.
Professional Leadership Program for Women
The Professional Leadership Program for Women is designed for women who are committed to increasing their capacity for leadership
and influence. Designed by business, community, and educational leaders, the program
provides hands-on practical learning and coaching in a supportive environment. Each
session builds on insights and skills developed from previous sessions culminating
in enhanced skills, added self-confidence, and the capacity to immediately impact
their organizations and communities in a powerful and positive way.
Women in Science Program
The Women in Science Program looks to create a cooperative and female-friendly learning and working environment
for both students and faculty while increasing the enrollment and retention of female
students in the experimental sciences. Additionally the program looks to develop leadership
skills for career development and enhance recruitment, mentoring, retention and visibility
of female faculty in the natural, physical, mathematical and computing sciences with
an emphasis on those fields where women are underrepresented.
