  • Corporate: Create metrics to assess potential partners to ensure that their organizations value DEI, including DEI practices, policy, procedures and leadership team and/or board of directors.
  • Community: Develop civic engagement and/or partnerships with community groups that leverage faculty, staff, student and alumni thought leadership and mentorship to advance education in business and create a pipeline of applicants.
  • Nonprofit: Utilize students, faculty, staff and alumni to provide support, expertise and/or pro-bono consulting services to local nonprofit organizations.
