In today’s working world, business graduates need to be equipped with the skills necessary to work in a rich and diverse community. It is important to understand, appreciate, and communicate effectively with clients and co-workers from different backgrounds.
At the Tippie College, we value the richness of a diverse working and educational environment. Increasing the breadth and depths of diversity is a strategic priority of the University of Iowa. Programs like the Tippie Gateway Program and The Iowa Edge are devoted to helping traditionally underrepresented students transition into college life. The success of these programs is inspiring, and we welcome new ideas on how to improve our offerings and programs.
The Iowa Edge helps traditionally underrepresented students develop a sense of community and connect to faculty, staff, other students, and resources on campus. This welcoming environment helps foster relationships, and students are empowered to achieve their goals.
