USD School of Business Diversity Statement

The University of San Diego School of Business strives to create a welcoming environment that promotes diversity, equity, inclusiveness (DEI) and ethics, commensurate with our Catholic mission. We value students, faculty and staff from different backgrounds, demographics, experiences, perspectives and faiths. 

These differences broaden our understanding of the world, and by extension, our ability to excel in learning, teaching, scholarship and service. We view the promotion of DEI as inexorably tied to the maintenance and enhancement of academic excellence, our development as civic and campus citizens, and the realization of compassionate service.

We are committed to achieving a more diverse campus community. This improves our ability to identify challenges, propose innovative solutions and implement more considerate policies. We greatly value all efforts to remove prejudices from academic and business environments, to promote social justice through scholarship and service, and to attract and increase retention of underrepresented groups.

To this end, the Diversity 2024 committee and the Building Inclusive Excellence Council (BIEC) are dedicated to providing recommendations to promote DEI at the USD School of Business. These include faculty climate surveys, implicit bias training, reflections on and the standardization of hiring practices, seminars or search committees, as well as other workshops on prejudice and discrimination.
