At Fisher College of Business, we champion diversity in intellectual thought and perspective. We inspire leadership through passion, integrity, hard work and the desire to succeed. Students join our programs because of the culture we have designed and our emphasis on high-impact teaching and research.

We continually seek to expand ethnic and cultural diversity as a contributor to intellectual diversity – and as a key factor in our success.

Our Mission

We are committed to:

  • Promoting equity, fairness, and respect in interpersonal dealings among all members in the college community.
  • Recruiting and retaining the most talented students, faculty, and staff while promoting diversity in culture and perspective.
  • Enhancing students’ intellectual, ethical and personal growth and their sensitivity to issues of diversity.
