Graduate Student Inclusivity & Diversity Task Force

Freeman students

In our continuing effort to enhance inclusivity and diversity within the A. B. Freeman School of Business, I am happy to announce the establishment of the Graduate Student Inclusivity and Diversity Task Force. The charge and membership are listed below.

Graduate Student Inclusivity & Diversity Task Force

Enhancing Student Inclusivity & Diversity in the Freeman School Graduate Programs

The task force’s charge is to develop recommendations for enhancing student inclusivity and diversity within the Freeman School’s graduate student population. Special emphasis should be placed on graduate admission policies, practices and processes with promise for enhancing Freeman’s attractiveness to historically underrepresented student populations. The task force will report its recommendations to Freeman School Dean Ira Solomon no later than the end of the spring 2021 term.

Task Force Members:

Melissa Booth, Assistant Dean of Graduate Admissions

John Clarke, Associate Dean of Graduate Programs & Academic Operations

Alexander Clay (MBA ’22), Graduate Student

Lloyd Lyons (MBA, MHA ’22), Graduate Student 

Jordan Reaves (MBA ’20), Graduate Student

Claire Senot, Associate Professor of Management Science

Alex Sleptsov, Professor of Practice in Management

Mallorie Wise (MBA/JD ’21), Graduate Student 

The student members of the task force were nominated by the Freeman School’s Graduate Business Council (GBC) under the leadership of the GBC president, Karina Mederos. I am grateful to all task force members for their service on this important task force.

— Ira Solomon, Freeman School dean
