At Michigan Ross, we are proud to promote and foster a community among LGBTQ+ students and allies, and provide resources that support your academic pursuits, personal interests, and career plans.
The LGBT rights organization for straight friends Friendfactor’s MBA Ally Challenge, which evaluates business schools based on LGBT oriented events, participation rates, and outcomes, rated Ross one of the most LGBT-friendly business schools in the nation.
Not only will you feel welcomed and supported at Ross, but you’ll find that supportive network extends throughout the U-M community, as well as the city of Ann Arbor, which is recognized as one of the nation’s most LGBT-friendly cities, earning a high score in the Human Rights Campaign’s Municipal Equality Index.
We encourage prospective LGBTQ+ students to self-identify in their applications and with the Office of Admissions. To connect with members of the Ross LGBTQ+ community, please contact us at: prospectivestudentOFB@umich.edu
Additionally, the city of Ann Arbor houses multiple resource centers and promotes diverse and inclusive events that foster safe spaces and social activities for the local LGBTQ+ community, such as the Jim Toy Community Center and PFLAG Ann Arbor.
