Recruitment Guidelines for Employers

The Center for Career Planning & Internships seeks to create a positive and successful experience for recruiters, students, and alumni.

We encourage organizations and their recruiters to help us maintain an equitable and successful recruiting process by acting in agreement with the following professional guidelines and principles:

  • Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Guidelines
  • National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) Principles for Employment Professionals
  • The guidelines laid out by the Center for Career Planning & Internships listed on this page

The Center for Career Planning & Internships reserves the right to refuse career services to employers who do not follow our established guidelines. These organizations may forfeit future eligibility to recruit through the Center for Career Planning & Internships.

We look forward to developing relationships with those recruiters who respect and adhere to the policies and ideals of equitable hiring. If you have any questions or concerns regarding these guidelines, please contact us at
