· Undergraduate student recruitment. In partnership with admissions and various individual faculty, the Marshall and Leventhal schools have several initiatives to build a more diverse and inclusive student body by increasing the number of high achieving undergraduate students from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups. These programs provide potential students with resources and information on applying to USC and prepare them for success and ultimately expands access to business and accounting professions.
· Master’s and doctoral student recruitment. Working with other academic units across USC as well as outside organizations (including THE CONSORTIUM and THE Ph.D. PROJECT), we work to increase the visibility and position of Marshall as an inclusive academic community. Our goal is to reduce the significant underrepresentation of Black, Latinx/e, and Native Americans in graduate business education and the ranks of global management across industries.
· The Marshall/Leventhal Scholars Program. The program, which began in 2022, provides a pathway for Marshall tenure-granting departments to hire high-potential candidates for postdoctoral or visiting professor positions. Ideal candidates add to the diversity of our faculty through their personal experiences/backgrounds or their commitment to supporting diversity, equity, and inclusion in business education and research.
· Strategic faculty hiring. Following the direction of the office of USC’s Chief Inclusion and Diversity Officer, we are implementing new processes to increase utilization of the resources available to departments and hiring committees.
