LGBTQ

We invite LGBTQ+ students to engage with the CLDC early and often during their time at OHIO. Coaching can be helpful for clarifying academic and major options, planning for ways to get experience before graduation, and building skills to be successful in the workplace. Consider working with one of our coaches in career coachingleadership coaching, or a mock interview to prepare for success during your time in school and to feel confident about your post-graduation plans. In addition to coaching, our workshops and events offer the chance to get practical experience while building your network.
