Embracing the diversity of Thought, association, and purpose
Our Commitment to Diversity
At Goizueta, diversity is a commitment to nurture -- and challenge -- the unique perspectives that will shape the future of business. It's a commitment to innovate in traditional fields and embrace emerging insights. It is the foundation of our intentions and actions. It is one of the core values by which we lead.
Join us during Inside Goizueta to experience our inclusive community and discover the value of a small school in a big city.
We aspire to create and sustain a community at Goizueta that is the best place to study and work. In support of this, we are committed to be a destination where all are respected, supported and valued. Goizueta has taken several important steps towards achieving this mission, including the adoption of a school-wide diversity vision statement, the appointment of a director of diversity and community initiatives, and the creation of a diversity committee.

The Diversity Committee was created in January, 2005 by Tom Robertson, former Dean. This committee's mission is to offer recommendations that help create a positive culture of inclusion, respect, communication, learning, and skill building for Goizueta community members. The committee operates under four guiding principles: inclusiveness, evaluation, institutionalization, and shared responsibility. Chaired by Earl Hill, Senior Lecturer in Organization and Management, the Diversity Committee includes representation from the faculty, students and staff. The diversity committee crafted the School's diversity vision statement that has been adopted by Goizueta. The committee will continue to explore ways and methods of evaluating our progress toward achieving our vision.
