Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Mission 

Drexel University’s LeBow College of Business is committed to developing the next generation of culturally competent, globally minded and innovative leaders in business and society through the institutionalization of diversity, equity and inclusion. We will advance diverse student, faculty and professional staff representation, drive equitable access to learning and experiential opportunities, and develop inclusive policies and practices. Consistent with LeBow’s mission, we strive to foster a culture of belonging founded in diverse collaborative learning, external partnerships, research and increased representation and resources for underserved populations.

Committed to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. 

At the LeBow College of Business, diversity, equity and inclusion are foundational to our core mission and values. We are committed to shaping and championing a learning and working environment that is inclusive, equitable and welcoming for all students, faculty and professional staff.  

We strive to treat everyone with respect and without bias and to celebrate our diverse worldviews, talents and cultures. As an institution of higher learning, we promote a free exchange of ideas and believe that embracing one another’s differences is a way to enrich our lives. These differences include race, ethnicity, gender, age, religion, language, ability, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, veteran status, political views, socioeconomic status, national origin, geographic region and more.

To support Drexel University’s initiatives in fostering understanding, respect and opportunity for a better University, the LeBow College of Business has developed resources, organizations and affiliations, development opportunities, programming and events to intentionally embed DEI in the framework of everything we do.
