Embracing Diversity

In union with UC Davis’ strategic plan, the Graduate School of Management is committed to building equity, inclusion and diversity across our community in a way that broadens, deepens and enriches the educational experience and the scholarly environment.

We believe our diversity is a source of our strength. It fuels innovative ideas, enriches problem solving and is the foundation for all true knowledge. Embracing diversity is not optional, but rather imperative to be a globally ranked program. It is why we strive to create an environment where everyone feels included and heard. This emphasis on ethnic, racial, cultural, gender, sexual orientation, geographic, professional and experiential diversity promotes our belief that a person learns and grows more when they are exposed to new ways of thinking and doing business.

The well-being of our university community depends on all of us feeling free to respectfully express ourselves and on our willingness to listen to one another, even during disagreements. We invite you to be part of this community—where students, faculty, partners, alumni and friends are committed to championing causes they believe in, expressing their own perspectives, and respecting views different from their own.

Embrace diversity, practice inclusive excellence and strive for equity. Make UC Davis a place of excellence for learning and working by supporting a culture that values the contributions and aspirations of all our students, staff and faculty; promotes wellness and a culture of sustainability; and cultivates the open interchange of ideas.
