2021-2022 Academic Year

In thinking about the safety and health of our students, faculty, staff and external partners, we have prepared a timeline to help guide your organization’s recruitment planning for fall 2021 at WashU. At this time, all sponsored and supported recruitment activities for fall 2021 will be entirely virtual, as many of the spaces in our buildings do not allow for proper social distancing. While there will likely be opportunities to engage with students in person and on campus in the future, we feel it is prudent to plan for a virtual recruitment program. This allows equitable access for students and can accommodate advanced scheduling requests.

The WashU Career Centers are committed to supporting all of your recruiting needs in this new environment as a result of COVID-19. Your respective Career Center team will be reaching out to schedule a time to discuss your fall 2021 recruiting efforts. Or reply to the following, someone will be sure to give you a call.
