Our commitment to engagement and belonging
At the Tippie College of Business we are committed to being a place where members of our community feel valued—where we lift each other up, rather than tear each other down. We are unwavering in our commitment to an inclusive mindset, through promoting opportunities for engagement and belonging for our people, in our practices, and in our programs.
Tippie’s BizEdge community is a program created for underrepresented and first-generation students to help them thrive throughout their collegiate experience. A continuation of the Gateway Summer Program for high school juniors, BizEdge supports business undergraduates through mentorship, scholarships, networking, alumni events, and more.
Over 20 scholarships were awarded to BizEdge members in 2019 alone, as well as many internship opportunities. The program also provides opportunities for students to connect with and learn from each other through the BizEdge Mentorship program.
The Dore Emerging Leaders Fellowship Program is part of the Dore-Tippie Women’s Leadership Program at the Tippie College of Business. We inducted our inaugural class of Emerging Leaders in 2020-2021 and invite a new class of freshmen each year.
