The Lundquist College of Business seeks to actively foster a welcoming and respectful environment that allows each stakeholder—students, faculty, staff, and community members—to thrive.
An important aspect of our mission is to educate Oregon's future business leaders, which requires engaging all stakeholders in the understanding that diversity, integrity, inclusion, and respect are critical for a successful organization. We aim to recruit and retain a diverse student body by promoting an environment in which the full range of ideas, experiences, and perspectives of individual members are valued and respected. We are also dedicated to ensuring that all individuals hired for positions at the Lundquist College share these values as we work to improve access, excellence, and inclusion for all.
Student organizations are an integral part of the Lundquist College experience. The college’s dynamic, diverse, and popular student clubs ensure you’ll feel connected to your peers—not in competition with them.
Here is a selection of Lundquist College clubs with a focus on inclusivity:
- Diverse Organization of Business Students
- International Business Association
- International Business and Economics Club
- Net Impact
- Women in Business
There are even more clubs, groups, and support services to explore in the greater UO community, with events taking place every day:
