Career Center receives Target grant to support diversity initiatives
Illinois State University’s Career Center has received a $4,000 grant from Target to support its diversity initiatives.
Since 2012, Target has provided Illinois State’s Career Center with financial support for its Cultural Career Network (CCN) workshops and educational programming. CCN prepares diverse students for the workplace through diversity awareness and education, and it assists employers with their diversity and inclusion initiatives. Through support from Target and other external sources, the Career Center is able to host workshops and programs to assist students with career development.
“We are extremely grateful to Target for its ongoing support of the students of Illinois State,” said Career Center Director Stephen Cantine. “Our services, programs, and events serve to help students to develop effective job search skills and strategies, and to connect students with employers seeking candidates for full-time positions, internships, professional practice experiences, and part-time jobs.”
“With Target’s dedicated financial support and continued commitment to Illinois State University, the Career Center is able to provide individualized attention and support to our diverse student population,” he added.
