This paper describes the social justice activities facilitated by a university careers service. The paper includes a discussion on the relationship between social justice and career development in higher education. Working examples of the activities provided by the career service focus upon the delivery of career-related services to
students who are represented by the major equity groups identified within the Australian higher education sector. The importance of theoretically informed practice and collaboration between campus agencies is emphasised as a means of achieving social justice outcomes.
