Support DEI Efforts in Culverhouse
The appointment of Dr. James King as the Associate Dean for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) in March of 2020 further illustrated the commitment of the Culverhouse College of Business to elevate and promote DEI. One of the immediate goals was to increase philanthropic support to help minimize the number of Culverhouse’s underrepresented minority students who abandoned or delayed their educational pursuits because of COVID-19 related financial hardship. Funds have and continue to be awarded through the Associate Dean’s office to affected students.
As we move into the future we will utilize the Culverhouse College of Business Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Support Fund to support the recruitment, retention and success of diverse students, and specifically to help mitigate the financial challenges that are disproportionally experienced by underrepresented minority students, which threaten their pursuit of academic achievements.
