College is a time of personal growth and development for students, including sexual identity and career development. As lesbian women move through Cassís stages of sexual identity development they are working toward integration of their sexual identity into their whole self. Preoccupation with this may cause delays in their career development processes. Heterosexual women do not face this specific struggle and may achieve career and personal integration more quickly. This study looks at the issues lesbian college students face in their career development as well as potential work place issues and what college career centers can do to help.
