Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Marshall Graduate Programs is committed to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

USC Marshall is dedicated to creating a collaborative, inclusive, diverse community, deriving value from our similarities and differences.  Our commitment to students from a variety of backgrounds, including first generation students, underrepresented minority populations, disabled students, veterans and women is unwavering.  

Marshall infuses diversity, equity and inclusion conversations and content into formal and informal, academic and extra-curricular forums. Course materials focusing on diversity and inclusion, a large variety of student organizations, special events and long-term working relationships with partner institutions enable our students, faculty, staff and our community to engage in dialogue, learn from shared and different experiences and to forge community through person to person connection. Each student organization is committed to creating an environment of diversity and inclusion and has formalized this commitment by creating a Diversity and Inclusion Officer within each of their leadership teams.
