DEI Leadership Committees

The McDonough School of Business views DEI as a community effort, relying on everyone to provide a welcoming space for all. To increase grassroots engagement and inspire progress, McDonough’s leadership committees are charged with improving the student co-curricular experience and classroom environment for faculty and students.
