Diversity at Haas

Dean's Message

Dean Rich Lyons on Diversity

No two Haas students are alike. That seems like an obvious statement. Certainly on the surface, you can see the differences: women and men, tall and short, different races and ages. It's when you talk with them that their real diversity becomes apparent: They all think differently.

Thinking differently is the real power of diversity. Welcoming different ways of thinking is the heart of inclusion.

Diversity means looking at problems from different angles, bringing your unique personal and professional experience to the situation. Being inclusive means being open to what each of us brings to the table.

Our mission is to develop leaders who redefine how we do business. One of the first steps is embracing our diversity as we redefine who those leaders are.
