Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) aren’t just things we talk about; they’re an active part of who we are.
As a Ross BBA student, you’ll meet people from all walks of life. In fact, our diverse culture, made up of students and faculty from many different backgrounds, is one of our greatest strengths. Learn, grow, and be challenged to look at problems from other points of view, just as you’ll do in business.
We think understanding identity and diversity is so important, we make it part of your entire experience at Ross.
The Teams That Make It Happen
Office of Undergraduate Programs
You can think of the Office of Undergraduate Programs (OUP) as the main avenue through which most diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives for the Ross BBA Program are coordinated. Coaching diversity case competitions, training students to lead diversity sessions, and promoting open and inclusive clubs, are just some of the many ways OUP works with students.
Office of Diversity and Inclusion
Ross should always be an enriching, diverse, and empowering place to learn. The Office of Diversity and Inclusion works directly with BBA students to make sure that it is. Consider this office your go-to for tools and information about inclusive spaces and programs at Ross.
BBA DEI Committee
This student group champions initiatives related to diversity, equity, and inclusion at Ross, and works with students, leadership, and minority groups to build meaningful connections. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
The Experiences That Bring It To Life
Note: These opportunities are available to Ross students of all genders, races, and ethnicities.
Identity & Diversity in Organizations (IDO) Curriculum Requirement
So here’s how it works. Various interactive events that focus on identity and diversity in organizations are held on campus. You’ll choose one to attend each year starting your sophomore year. Afterward, you’ll reflect on how the event shaped your viewpoint and write about it in a graded paper.
You’ll also test your cultural intelligence (CQ). Don’t worry, it’s not for a grade. But, our CQ assessments are a valuable way to measure how you evolve at Ross — and how we know students are ready to positively impact business.
Och Initiative for Women in Finance
Considering a career in finance? Through the Och Initiative for Women in Finance, you can gain access to resources, networking events, mentorship, and career support as you prepare for life after Ross. The Och Initiative is open to all Ross undergraduates, regardless of gender.
Join one of the many student clubs where you’ll make new friends, find common interests, and focus on issues that inspire you.
