Diversity & Inclusion

At the Carroll School of Management, we embrace and celebrate the differences in our close-knit community—differences of background, identity, perspective, and ideas. We view diversity and inclusion as markers of both ethical leadership and sound management practice. Grounded in this belief as well as Boston College's Jesuit tradition, the Carroll School is committed to fostering an inclusive environment where all students, faculty, and staff feel welcomed, accepted, and supported.

Our curriculum asks students to engage with the most urgent social and ethical questions in contemporary business, and to consider their role in promoting a more just and compassionate society. They learn that diversity is good for business, but that greater profitability and innovation are secondary benefits to promoting an inclusive community in the spirit of cura personalis, the Jesuit value of caring for the whole person.

The Carroll School’s faculty is worldly as well as world-class. They come to Chestnut Hill from all corners of the globe to share their knowledge and ideas with our students, with their academic colleagues, and with the wider business community. The work of our research centers, as well, aims to tackle some of the most complex challenges to creating an equitable and inclusive workplace and society. These include developing affordable urban housing opportunities; retiring with dignity; balancing work and family; and engaging in ethical and socially responsible corporate leadership.
