Beyond the Ivy League

To diversify your early career talent pipeline, you need to be recruiting from a variety of school-types.

There’s no doubt that elite institutions are teeming with highly-qualified talent, but they aren’t the only places to source top candidates today – especially if you’re looking for a diverse slate of students to add to your talent pipeline.

In fact, companies that want to make progress when it comes to D&I need to ensure that their recruitment strategies include connecting with candidates from a variety of backgrounds at different school-types, such as public universities, Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), community colleges, all-women's colleges, and more. 

Hoping to expand your campus recruitment to include more school-types with diverse populations? Our guide will get you started by highlighting top schools for you to explore across the country.
