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.
As a school of management, Isenberg has the unique power and privilege to enact change in two worlds: the business world and that of higher education. We see ourselves as being uniquely able to flip the system from one of brutality, violence, and deep-rooted injustice to one of liberation. Here we have outlined various initiatives and actions we will use to move us forward.
Students in this committee attend monthly meetings with Isenberg's DEI staff and the assistant dean of undergraduate programs to plan, scope, and strategize around student-centered diversity and inclusion initiatives and projects. Students should share a commitment to being a change agent for the development of a more inclusive Isenberg culture that supports ALL people, specifically those from underrepresented groups and identities.
For graduates to succeed and ultimately lead in our increasingly diverse and global business world, they must have a broad range of intercultural experiences. The Inclusive Leadership Summit (ILS) is the nexus of our diversity and inclusion efforts. The ILS brings industry partners, alumni, students, faculty, staff, and community leaders together to share best practices, industry trends, and concerns related to diversity and inclusion in business.

At the Isenberg School of Management, we strive to provide the resources, opportunities, and support that underrepresented students need to thrive. Here are just a few of the ways Isenberg fosters an inclusive culture.
Through a wide variety of student organizations, such as Isenberg Women in Business and the Association of Diversity in Sport, the school advances the academic, professional, and social needs of our community, provides leadership opportunities, and helps connect students with specific identities, backgrounds, and interests.
From the study of gender and organization to the inclusion of marginalized groups in sport, Isenberg faculty are on the cutting edge of research that develops the understanding and promotion of diversity and inclusion on our campus and beyond.
Isenberg supports our diverse community with a range of both need- and merit-based scholarships for students from underrepresented groups, including people of color, women, international students, and others.
