Diversity and Inclusion Student Services

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion Student Services at Fisher College of Business offers academic counseling, scholarships, need-based financial aid and tutoring services for minority undergraduate and graduate students. It also provides support to campus departments, corporations, companies and agencies which seek to help minority students succeed academically, financially and socially.

Student Organizations

Student organizations and activities are as varied as our students themselves. The Office of Diversity and Inclusion Student Services provides advisement, encouragement and funding support to 15 minority business student organizations. These organizations are designed to give attention to the particular interests, concerns and challenges of minority students interested in business careers.

Minority business student organizations provide culturally and socially significant vehicles for the establishment of mentorship, career placement and networking opportunities with local businesses, corporations and Fisher alumni located nationally and internationally.
