Diversity & Inclusion Resources

At the Isenberg School of Management, we are committed to fostering a diverse, inclusive, and welcoming environment for our students, faculty, and staff. Through diversity and inclusion, we promote the exchange of varying perspectives and the inclusion of different experiences, which prepares our students to lead in an increasingly global market.

For graduates to succeed and ultimately lead in our increasingly diverse and global business world, they must have a broad range of intercultural experiences. Immersive experiences are critical for our students to gain the perspectives and expertise they need to be leaders. We are committed to advancing an inclusive community at Isenberg, creating a better learning environment and workplace for all.
