Diversity & Inclusion

Fostering diversity and inclusion is one of the five Core Values of the Rawls College of Business.

Diversity is a broad concept that encompasses all the unique characteristics that students, staff, and faculty bring to the Rawls College. Diversity includes gender, race, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation/identity, socio-economic condition, education, age, physical abilities, religious beliefs, political beliefs and other ideologies, but also includes diversity of thought, ideas, backgrounds and experiences.

Inclusion means that students, staff, and faculty move beyond merely recognizing individual differences to welcoming and valuing the contributions that individual differences make to the innovative, engaged, and impactful business education experience in the Rawls College.
