Knowledge Communities

One of the exciting and unique features of the Hire Big10+ Career Consortium is our Knowledge Communities.

The Hire Big10+ has developed Knowledge Communities (KC) to build relationships across our institutions and allow for specific forums to keep up-to-date on career services topics that are relevant to our industry. Network with your peers to share knowledge and skills, develop and strengthen leadership skills, acquire new insights and nourish a community of career services professionals. Events are also advertised on the Event Calendar on the website.

If you have any questions about our knowledge communities, please contact Cynthia Velazquez O'Brien, Vice Chair at

Knowledge Communities 2023

Knowledge Communities have virtual meetings throughout the year to share insights about various topics that affect each KC. Learn from colleagues, hear about different points of view, and expand your knowledge. To get involved, please connect directly with the lead or co-lead of the knowledge community to learn more about how to get involved.
