Willumstad School of Business Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Council
Willumstad School’s DEI Council Promotes a Sense of Belonging.
Robert B. Willumstad School of Business (WSB) Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Council, established in 2020, engages in activities to create and maintain a culture of inclusion that provides a sense of belonging for all.
The council is made up of volunteer members of the WSB faculty and staff, who meet on a regular basis each month. As part of the Willumstad School’s regular faculty meetings, we share bias/implicit bias behavior experienced by faculty members.
The WSB council has also created a student task force to further the mission of diversity, equity and inclusion, for example, by regularly discussing opportunities to incorporate DEI ideals into its curriculum and student services.
The establishment of a high school mentoring program is another initiative of the council. Willumstad School faculty look to collaborate with local area high schools to motivate their students in underserved communities to pursue higher education opportunities.
The council holds monthly meetings.
We are always actively seeking new members as we continue to grow the WSB Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Council. We also recognize that there are others who want to be an “ally” to the Council and this work, so we also encourage them to come forward and be recognized.
To become a member of the WSB Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Council, please contact the chairperson directly.
