Diversity and Inclusion

The Darla Moore School of Business is committed to fostering inclusion and diversity throughout the school based on equal opportunity, respect and accountability. We strive to create an environment in which every student, faculty and staff member recognizes and values all races, ethnicities, religions, genders, identity expression and sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability or veteran status. Furthermore, we aim at constant improvement through dialogue with key stakeholders, education and awareness, and self-monitoring.
At the Moore School, we believe that diversity and inclusion are fundamental values to be pursued and cherished, as they are the very foundation of a civil society. Equal opportunities and unity through differences are mutually beneficial for every party involved as they lead to higher degrees of individual freedom and participation; just, safe, and stable societies; and economic development.

In addition to meeting our organizational obligation to respect and actively support the goals of diversity and inclusion, the Moore School is committed to modeling the values of diversity and inclusion as a part of business education. Diversity and inclusion have proven to constitute a competitive advantage for firms, leading to better decision-making, greater innovation and higher market penetration. As a business school, therefore, one of our goals is to provide students with concrete skills and role models in diversity and inclusion to help them succeed in their professional careers.
