Beyond Diversity—Committed to Inclusive Excellence

Diversity challenges assumptions, offers fresh perspectives and teaches us to transcend differences to find solutions. Supporting a diverse community to achieve inclusive excellence is a priority at the Daniels College of Business. We work to value, engage and include our rich diversity of students, staff, faculty, administrators, and alumni constituents.

Daniels is committed to being a community in which members and visitors feel safe and valued and can share all of who they are; engage in the free exchange of ideas; and do so in an environment characterized by openness, honesty, trust and respect.

Activities

Diversity and inclusivity are not just buzzwords at Daniels and the University of Denver (DU). We actively encourage inclusivity in the classroom and on campus through student groups, professional organizations and events.

  • Inclusive Excellence Committee: The committee consists of faculty, staff and students from DU who evaluate and further the efforts of inclusivity and diversity through awareness and educational programming at Daniels.
  • Inclusive Excellence Business Case Competition: Students research and propose solutions to participating companies’ real-world problems regarding diversity. Students in all disciplines at the university make up each team, and each team must be comprised of a diverse set of students. This is one of the country’s few business case competitions focused on the topic.
  • Student groups: Students participate in a myriad of clubs and organizations focusing on diversity and inclusivity issues.
  • Professional and community organizations: Faculty, students and staff can extend their network with organizations dedicated to the advancement of diverse business groups.
