Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Resources
Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
The University of Virginia Career Center is committed to diverse and inclusive practices in all facets of counseling, programming, and career development. All students’ backgrounds, perspectives, and identities are valued and respected as we acknowledge the systemic forms of discrimination that have marginalized underrepresented and underserved students.
We aim to use an intersectional approach in our services and be mindful of how power, privilege, and bias are at play within the employment process. To create an environment where all students feel welcomed, celebrated, and heard, we invite feedback and dialogue on how we can better meet these goals.
The UVA Career Center is committed to accommodating the diverse needs of the student body. If you or someone you know requires an accommodation for a disability in to fully access the format, materials, or presentation of our resources, please reach out to us at [email protected] so we can explore potential options. Students with disabilities may also wish to work with the Student Disability Access Center to discuss a range of options for removing potential barriers at the Career Center, including official accommodations. Please visit their website for information on this process and to apply for services online: https://www.studenthealth.virginia.edu/SDAC. If you have already been approved for accommodations through SDAC, please let us know so we can develop an implementation plan together.
