The LeBow College of Business is proud to introduce the Graduate Student Diversity and Inclusion Video Challenge. As an extension of our commitment to the value of inclusion, we are highlighting and celebrating the perspectives of our diverse student body. As an institution of higher learning, we promote a free exchange of ideas and strive to foster understanding, respect and opportunity for a better University.
