Harvard University is devoted to excellence in teaching, learning, and research, and to developing leaders in many disciplines who make a difference globally. The University, which is based in Cambridge and Boston, Massachusetts, has an enrollment of over 20,000 degree candidates, including undergraduate, graduate, and professional students. Harvard has more than 360,000 alumni around the world.
At the Office of Career Services (OCS), we acknowledge that career advancement is a social justice issue. Having only four Black CEOs of Fortune 500 companies is not acceptable in corporate America in 2020. OCS believes that the diversity of our community strengthens and enriches our campus. OCS is committed to serving students of all backgrounds, identities, and experiences (including and not limited to gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, religion, immigration status, nationality, socioeconomic status, and disability). We recognize that issues of identity and career often intersect, and that diverse students may face specific challenges, including systemic racism, as they become professionals navigating career opportunities and the workplace environment.
