Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The Tippie College of Business disavows racism, cruelty, and violence in any form. 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 promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) through our people, our practices, and our programs.
