“Wisconsin is among the first business schools in the nation to offer a dedicated center that promotes diversity, equity, and inclusion and supports underrepresented students, particularly students of color. The center was founded on students’ innovation, dedication, and a call to create community. A center like this is important to ensure that students are able to celebrate culture and foster a sense of belonging in the Wisconsin School of Business.”
