A Commitment To Promoting Diversity

At Marshall, we seek a student population that is diverse across a number of important dimensions, and we aspire to recruit students who offer diversity of thought and ideas. Most employers are equally eager to attract these diverse candidates.

The Marshall Graduate Career Services Center is committed to support all students – including underrepresented minorities, veterans, women, LGBTQ and individuals with disabilities – in attaining their career aspirations.

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives creates new endeavors and promotes and supports the myriad of existing diversity initiatives, including partnerships, events activities and student clubs. 

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender (LGBTQ)

The Marshall Graduate Career Services Center offers resources to LGBTQ students seeking information on locating gay-friendly companies, coming out during the job search and transitioning into the workplace. Click here to access the LGBTQ Resource Center website.
