- Conduct and promote research initiatives aimed at minority business students, staff, faculty and other stakeholders.
- Empower academic and private sector professionals to become knowledgeable and engaged in diversity and inclusion practices.
- Provide colleagues with professional development and resources to advance equity in recruitment and the classroom.
