Black and African American Students

The Career Hub is committed to serving every single student and all alumni in the O’Neill School family. We value each individual and acknowledge intersectionality across the various dimensions of identity – who each of us is and how we define ourselves. We understand many identity-related barriers exist in career exploration and professional development.

The list of resources provided below is not exhaustive and we invite our students and alumni to share their thoughts or suggest new resources to improve this page by emailing: careerhb@indiana.edu.
