Many students choose the Tepper School of Business for its close-knit student community. We draw our strength from differences and work to build common ground. People come from every imaginable background, blending cultures, ambitions and life experience, all while working toward a common goal.
Enhancing diversity at the Tepper School is a top priority. We take our cue from the advances that have been at Carnegie Mellon University, where President Jared L. Cohon is personally spearheading implementation. He issued his first diversity statement in 2001 to explain why diversity is important to the institution and its continued vitality and growth, and has continued to emphasize the importance of this issue.
The University also maintains a Diversity Advisory Council (DAC), a multi-constituent body whose aim is to heighten awareness and encourage debate on the issues that surround diversity. Likewise, this ombudsman group also implements activities that support mutual respect and community success.
Your desire to reinvent yourself and accelerate your life will not happen in isolation. It requires the daily give and take of ideas and learning to see a business problem from a completely different point of view. It takes trust and share investment. It takes a place like the Tepper School, where your unique set of experiences and talent will be a valued contributor to a transformational experience.
