Invest in Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity & Inclusion greatly appreciates any and all donations to the College of Business Diversity Fund. Your gifts enhance the collegiate experience for participating students and prepare them for the transition from college to career.

In the past, this fund has enabled Diversity & Inclusion to:

  • Host workshops with the purpose of building resumes, developing interview skills, improving social media presence, and establishing credit.
  • Host events for business students like the Annual Dress for Success Fashion Show, the National Association of Black Accountants (NABA) Ice Cream Social, and speaker series luncheons for organizations and corporate representatives to share their professional advice with students.
  • Increase recruiting efforts by faculty members visiting high schools and being active at LSU recruiting events such as SPRINGFEST Recruitment Weekend.
  • Allow associated programs to send students and faculty to external conferences and competitions such as the PhD Project Conference, National Diversity Case Competition, Texas Diversity & Leadership Conference, Louisiana Women in Leadership Symposium, SEC Business School Chief Diversity Officers Conference, the National Association of Black Accountants (NABA) Convention, and the National Association of Women MBAs (NAWMBA) Convention.

Diversity & Inclusion would like to offer these opportunities in the future more frequently, allowing more students these experiences.

Diversity & Inclusion has established the Diversity & Inclusion Scholarship, which would assist academically eligible students with tuition costs at the college or for studying abroad, allowing them to focus more on academics and leadership activities.
