Identity-Based Career Resources

St. John’s University’s student body is among the most diverse in the nation, with near forty-five percent identifying as Black, Hispanic, Asian, Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, American Indian, Alaska Native, or Two or More Races.  Our students come from 46 states, each of the U.S. territories and 119 countries. We are rooted in the Catholic tradition, specifically the teachings of St. Vincent de Paul; however, our students identify as more than 15 different religions with only 45% of our students identifying as Catholic.
