Working for social justice, equity, and change

What is your dream career?

Like Patrick Fraser’17, your path to a career might start with a first-year seminar on the U.S. war on terrorism, continue with an internship at Mothers at Risk in Brussels, Belgium, turn into winning a Fulbright Scholarship to teach in Malaysia, then lead to working as a civil rights advocate at the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Vermont. 

Or you might take your experience advocating for transgender rights on campus to the Iowa statehouse, fighting for healthcare equality like Tobias Gurl’12

Or your time at Beloit working at the nearby Winnebago County Public Defender’s Office might launch a legal career with the Bronx Defenders, serving low-income Bronx residents in criminal, civil, child welfare, and immigration cases, like Harvard-educated criminal defense lawyer Ruth Hamilton’07.
