Diversity and Inclusion

The Carl H. Lindner College of Business strives to build and nurture learning partnerships that foster sustainable enterprises and careers. The values of diversity, equity and inclusion are embedded in what we do. Lindner’s Diversity and Inclusion office aims to:

  • Serve as a resource for and foster beneficial relationships among students, faculty, staff, alumni, businesses and community partners so that students from all backgrounds, perspectives and experiences are welcomed, supported and celebrated.
  • Provide programs and opportunities for students to develop into culturally competent global citizens and future change agents who will use their skills and talents as a force for good in business.

It’s not about counting people, but making people count. We value our differences and utilize those differences as a means of fueling innovation, impact and inclusion.
