Veterans

The Veterans’ Affinity group is an electronic platform for those who have worn the uniform to connect, share, interact and network with others who share their experience, interests and concerns related to internship, job search, employers and other career related topics.


Scroll through the resources and articles to find information related to the African American experience and be inspired by success stories.

If you are interested in participating in and/or supporting this community, please feel free to share your experiences, provide resources that may support students’ pathways to development, connect with students to offer insight and support, and inform the broader community of internships, community engagement, or job opportunities.
