Statement by Dean Vivek Choudhury

WASHINGTON, DC Feb 12, 2018 —The George Washington University School of Business is fortunate to have students, staff and faculty from all across the country and from around the world, including people of many racial, ethnic, national and religious backgrounds, physical abilities and sexual orientations.

As members of the GWSB community, we enjoy the opportunity to meet, work with, learn from and befriend people whose backgrounds, experiences and views may be different from our own.  For our students this opportunity is every bit as important a part of their education as what they learn in the classroom.

Following recent events on campus, GWSB reaffirms its commitment to diversity, inclusion, and fostering a climate of tolerance.  The success of a pluralistic society, such as ours at GWSB, depends on our mutual respect for one another and our respect for the human dignity of each individual. Anything less is unacceptable.
