Well known as one of the most innovative and successful career development centers of its type in the country, MHC’s Career Development Center (CDC) nevertheless continues to make improvements. This summer, the CDC brought Trevin Lau on board in the newly created position of multicultural career adviser. Lau, who was born in Hong Kong and raised in Massachusetts, has a bachelor’s degree in psychology and biology. In addition to being part of the center’s team of career counselors, Lau does outreach to students of color and lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered students. "My job," says Lau, "is to go out there and let these students know that the CDC is committed [to their needs] and is accessible. I tell them what we have to offer, and I encourage them to use our services." One of the ways Lau accomplishes this is to design career workshops specifically for campus groups. Recently, for example, she made a presentation to Sistahs in Science, a student group for women of color in the sciences. Lau discussed resources to help the members learn how to create opportunities for internships, as well as information about scholarships geared toward women in the sciences.

This fall, Katya King was appointed assistant director of fellowships and scholarships. Born in Prague, she grew up in Sweden and earned a Ph.D. in Slavic languages and literatures from Harvard University. Her duties at the CDC include keeping students abreast of fellowship opportunities, assisting them with their applications, and administering major fellowships and scholarships.The

CDC Expands Office Hours

CDC staff expect that added office hours, Wednesdays from 5 to 8 pm, will allow education majors, scholar-athletes, and other students with crowded daytime schedules easier access to the on-site services of the center. When classes are in session, CDC hours are Monday to Friday from 8:30 am to 5 pm, with additional hours Wednesday and Thursday from 5 to 8 pm, and Saturday from 1 to 4 pm. For this semester, Trevin Lau has established office hours at three campus cultural centers. Students will find her at the Betty Shabazz House, Mondays from 6 to 7 pm; the Ortega Center, Mondays from 7 to 8 pm; and at the Asian Center for Empowerment (ACE), Tuesdays from 6 to 7 pm.
