  • Must be a US citizen
  • Must be a current, full-time, degree-seeking, post-secondary student, unless they are taking a reduced course load due to a disability OR are in their final semester OR graduated after October, 2013

Students who meet all three criteria are invited to an information session on Monday, September 22, 2014, at 3:30pm in the Career Center, Chavis University Center, Suite 210.

WRP FAQs for Students

Diversity Statement

The staff members of the Career Center are committed to the promotion and affirmation of diversity in its broadest sense. Prejudice and discrimination on the basis of gender, ethnicity, race, age, physical and mental abilities, sexual/affectional orientation, religious beliefs, and socioeconomic class are counterproductive to the professional ethics to which we adhere. The staff members are challenged to reach out to traditionally under-served populations and become more thoroughly educated as well as to educate others about the career development issues of a pluralistic society.
