Identity-Based Career Resources


The Shapiro Library and SNHU Career (online students) and SNHU Career & Professional Development Center (campus students) embrace the university’s commitment to diversity and inclusion This link opens in a new window and is dedicated to ensuring all students’ experiences, perspectives and backgrounds are respected, recognized, and integrated into their career planning experience and development. The university strives to prepare diverse and historically underserved and underrepresented populations for career success as part of their learning experience. 

This page is an initial list of resources to serve as a starting point in preparing diverse students, interns and job seekers for potential unique challenges in the workplace. The Library and Career services offices appreciate that individuals possess intersectional identities. We encourage learners to explore all resources listed as they pertain to each unique learner situation.

SNHU Career (online students) and the SNHU Career & Professional Development Center (campus students) offer individual counseling, job and internship resources, networking events, and professional development opportunities to help students of all ethnicities, races, affinities, identities, interests, and backgrounds achieve their goals.
