The Eccles Experience is for everyone

The David Eccles School of Business is committed to fostering an inclusive culture by embracing diversity and equity in all its forms. It’s important that our students, staff, faculty and guests feel included and represented at the Eccles School.

We insist on a climate of diversity, equity and inclusion, not just because it creates a safe place for everyone, but because we’re all better and more empathetic people when we learn what it’s like to live in someone else’s shoes.

Because of this, the David Eccles School of Business and the University of Utah offer clubs, events, initiatives and many other resources to foster an inclusive environment.
