Atkins Law Career Closet Philanthropy Origins

Early in her junior year, Cierra Abellera (Psychology B.S., 2019) was preparing for a professional research conference with her McNair Scholars cohort – consisting of first generation, limited income and underrepresented students. Realizing that not all members of her cohort had access to buy or borrow professional clothing, she identified a solution.

In Summer 2018, Cierra and other student representatives from the MLK Living Legacy Committee approached COBE Career Services to house and host the closet. As a result, both organizations worked collaboratively to build a comfortable and welcoming space. 

In 2022, attorney and former adjunct professor Thomas Atkins approached the COBE development team with the desire to give back. Thomas knows the value of high-impact student services first hand; he has seen his former students gain professional momentum by using the closet and similar success resources. Knowing the impact that these services make, he and his law partners offered to make a gift. With their support (and yours!) we continue to serve students in a meaningful way.

Bronco Giving Day

The Atkins Law Career Closet has stayed free to students thanks to continued monetary and clothing donations from companies and community members.
