The Diversity Career Fair is open to students and members of the community. The Office of Lesbian, Bisexual, Gay, and Transgender Student Services and Career and Student Employment Services are responsible for sponsoring this event.

All students who are interested in or looking for a career in which diversity in the workplace is valued are encouraged to come to the Diversity Career Fair.
