Career Services is committed to advocating for and supporting Indigenous students and alumni as they navigate the intersection of career and identity.
Arizona State University’s four campuses are located in the Salt River Valley on ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today. Our team at Career Services acknowledges the sovereignty of all Indigenous nations and are deeply committed to the self-defined success of our Indigenous students and alumni.
