Group of students attending the Evening of Diversity Networking in March 2022

Race and Ethnicity

The Center for Career Development has, in recent years, grown its programming in response to a university-wide diversity-equity-inclusion framework and racial justice outreach to underrepresented groups.

We partner with the Center for Excellence in Diversity & Student Inclusion, with the Office of Alumni Engagement and the Center for Community Engaged Teaching & Research to provide you with relevant events such as a Social Justice Internship Fair, An Evening of Inclusive Networking and An Evening of Diversity Recruiting.

Student groups such as the Black Student Union and Ebony Women work with us to host their own events and support our programming. Additionally, more than15 student diversity organizations meet on campus.

Fellowships, foremost among them the Pittsburgh focused Chuck Cooper Foundation Fellowship, a partnership with the Boston Celtics, and Duquesne-specific opportunities such as the Gussin Spiritan Division Scholarships seek to provide pathways to leadership and success in all disciplines.  

DukesConnect, our on-line networking and mentoring platform, provides connections irrespective of user's background, but include special-interest sub-platforms as well, by academic school, and, in some cases, interest and identity. If interested, consider joining the Black Alumni Network in DukesConnect.
